Pernicious anemia.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all. I have been having B12 injections and taking folate for more than 10/12years. Injection every 3months and 1folate tab every day. 2weeks and 2weeks after my injection I have felt like I was hit by a train. After I could run a marathon as I am 52 but generally active. The last 2 months I have had none stop fuzzy headachs pins and needles in my hands face and feet. Worse in the morning. My fingers are stiff and hert when I bend them. Can anyone show some light on possible cause of this problem. Or as anyone had same discomfort. Many thanks. A

    Pins/needles in hands and feet could be thyroid issues.  Maybe get that checked.

    Every couple of months I have a day where I feel like I have been hit by a train...usually only lasts a day.

    Not sure if any relation to B12/folate possibly something else.  

    I have Herpes virus and have seen posts about adnenal fatigue which causes similar exausted feelings.

    Good luck
