I am wondering if someone could please help. I have been back and forth the doctors for years with tiredness, headaches etc and have been fobbed off. However recently its become worse and I’ve been having heart palpitations, numbness and pins and needles in feet & hands as well as other symptoms and I requested to have blood tests done. My results follow:
b12 - 167ng
ferritin - 21ug
folate - 10.3ug
Vit D - 35
I have done a lot of research on both iron and b12 deficiency and from my understanding anything below 200ng b12 is extremely low? My doctor has advised my b12 is normal and that the symptoms I have would not be related to b12 deficiency.
My doctors have put me of 200mg of ferrous sulfate tablets and vit D tablets which I have been taking for the past month but I haven’t noticed any benefits from taking them. I am also a vegetarian and have been my whole life.
I am unsure what to do as I have read b12 is hard to diagnose - any comments would be appreciated.
