I have been feeling ill for months, probably longer with the same symptoms, palpitations, unsteady on my feet, absolutely exhausted all the time,recurrent bad chest infections, ending up in hospital once, where they looked for asthma as I was so short of breath,very swollen ankles, and out of puff when I try to do housework, headaches and I got the feeling over time that the Dr probably thought I was imagining things! In the last month things got so bad that the Dr. gave me all the blood tests for CHF as my symptoms, age and history seemed to point in that direction. Thankfully my heart seems to be ok for my age,71. the blood results did show that I had a low B12 reading,106, and the Dr gave me the first B12 injection last week with 4 more to come at weekly intervals. I was so pleased my heart was ok and she didn't say about low B12 possibly causing my symptoms and making me feel so ill. I am wondering if anyone can give me some hope of feeling better, and if there is anything I can do to boost levels myself. I have been taking PPIs for years because of a hiatus hernia. I have read a lot of the posts and they are very informative and you know that other poor souls are suffering too. I hope in one way that this is the cause of my probs, I never knew B12 anaemia could be such a debilitating illness.
