I am just looking for some confirmation, could I have B12 deficiency? This winter I became very ill. I was not sleeping at all, felt anxious all the time, and the worst part was this - sort of - humming in my ear.
My doc put me on anti-anxiety drugs and I did begin to feel better. I still feel really tired though and - at times - also a bit depressed. Sometimes my tongue seems to swell and it's like it doesn't fit my mouth. I also recognise the ataxia and afasia symptoms to a certain degree.
Since I was so depressed, and this wasn't the first time, I recently also had testing done and discovered that I have a common mutation that is called MTRR and reduces my capacity to make active B12.
Would it be wise to test for B12 deficiency? I would love to test my active B12, but I am not sure I can convince my doc to do this. I do think this is the only way to find out if I have enough active B12.
I had testing done before. My value in 2012 was 330 pmol/l.
I would love to hear your suggestions.
