hello , I hope you dont mind me seeking help for my husband who does not 'do' the interent.
He has been suffering from extreme fatigue for over a year now although symptoms have probably come on gradually. He has had test after test and the only thing they have found was anaemia which they treated but which didnt have any affect at his next blood test , the GP just says it his age (67 ) and its ok to feel tired . He falls asleep at the table after breakfast and may go back to bed again as he feels so tired and he has real apathy , this is not like him. I have also noticed that his pupils appear strange , smaller and as if he has drunk alot of alcohol.
We eat pretty well, he eats meat and liver, eggs etc and lots of home grown vegetables but I feel that the medication may be the culprit. I am trying to get him to ask for a B12 blood test next time he has an apointment.
He has been taking sublingual B12 and folate and he did seem to improve a bit but after reading about over use of B12 I bought a lower dose . 1mg I think.
We are in the UK and its hard to know what to ask for. Has anyone experienced this sort of thing and how did they proceed.? also would he need to stop the B12 supplement for a period of time before a blood test ? thanks.
