Hi all, I've been going to my GP with these symptoms over the past few years and had stomach issues since I was 14 which were blamed on IBS but later on my Gallbladder which was removed. I'm constantly tired, go to bed and wake up with a headache everyday. I used to have problems with constipation but now it's diarrhoea and after I've eaten I have to literally run to the toilet within 30mins which isn't ideal when I work full time. My brain fog is horrendous and I forget the simplest of words and don't like to have conversations with people now as it's embarrassing when you can't think of a word to finish a sentence. My GP has blamed it all on stress and tried to send me away. She eventually agreed on blood tests which I had. I was borderline Vitamin D and Liver Function test was borderline and my B12 was really low. A year ago I had the same blood tests and was vegetarian at the time...my B12 then was borderline, as was my Vit D but Liver Function then was normal. I started eating meat again just after that as was told it would help the B12. Obviously it hasn't as it is now low.
I'm now getting B12 injections and getting my 2nd one tomorrow but I feel no better so far. I asked the GP for further tests as to try to find the cause of my low B12 instead of just treating the symptoms. I was left a message from GP stating I should be happy I'm getting B12 injections! My life is revolving around my fatigue at the moment and I have to have a sleep when I get in from work due to being so tired and having no energy for anything else! Anyone else having similar problems?
