Title pretty much sums it up, I have been diagnosed with B12 and folate deficiency. I was having issues with walking suspected plantar fasciitis however the physio asked for additional bloods as I was also having issues with my finger nails (beau lines). The results came back this week with the Deficiencies. I asked what had caused it as I eat most of the things that would give me B12 and folic acid but was told that it's one of those things that they aren't sure of. I have to have 5 injections starting next week and then another blood test followed by (if B12 is up to where it should be) folic acid tablets.
My sister also has B12 Deficiency but has good folate levels, she was lacking in something else she did tell me but its gone out of my head. So I asked the doctor is it hereditary to which I was told no it's not however my sisters doctor says it is (if you can shed any light on this id be interested). So now I'm at a loss.
My symptoms are other that foot and hip pain.. I have aching joints mainly legs and arms, wrists. I feel weak, my get up and go got up and left, I have trouble staying asleep. Concentrating is also a problem now
