Can anybody out there help me to figure out what to do with my GPs? I have recently had a blood test which showed my B12 levels were low (below 200). So they sent me for another blood test for pernicious anaemia and celiac's disease. That came back normal and they marked me as 'no follow up needed'. I have spoken to a GP today and he says that if there is no anaemia, there is no need for treatment. This doesn't sound right to me and I have asked to see a different GP next week.
My mother has exactly the same unknown condition - low B12, not anaemic - and she has to have injections.
I was first diagnosed with low B12 10 years ago (I'm 38 now) and had injections. The injections made me break out in tiny little welts, so they took me off them. Since my teens I have suffered from recurrent staph infections, candida (skin), depression and anxiety, and in my early 30s I suddenly developed hyperacusis (hyper-sensitive hearing). They told me the hearing thing would have been since birth, but I never had a problem with it prior to a few years ago. Also, I am always tired.. I'm concerned that the low B12 levels are causing all of this, but the doctors just seem to dismiss it.
