Hey, im new to this.. knew somthing wasnt right for some time but gp put it down to anxiety before even doing bloods. My symptoms seem to be shaky . Like a wobbly feeling when i walk.. sore neck and shoulders would describe this as muscle tension.. habe this internal vibration thats really annoying.. also my vision is really playing up.. i see purple in my peripheral vision, white spots like when you stand up to quick.. also i get halos roumd lights rainbow ones .. with dry eyes.. omg so dry they can sting. Can anyone relate to these symptoms (EYES ESPECIALLY) and did your symptoms go away with treatment? My b12 is at 133 but gp said its not that low... your thoughts? Also i will reply as soon as i remember ive wrote this because my memory has been shocking aswell!! So have my headaches and skipped heart beats. Thanks...

    Hi Sarah,

    Would love to hear how you’re doing now, especially did your vision problems resolve.  I also have been feel off for many years and in the past 9 months, all the neurological issues started.  Same ones you describe.  It took that look and finally I gave up on getting a diagnosis and ended up taking my health in my own hands and started seeing a naturopath.  I have all of the same symptoms as you and just started b12 shots last week.  

    Hope you’re doing well,

    Chitra

      Hi DeviPrasad,

      I live in Canada and Naturopaths here give B12 shots.  So if you’re not happy with the frequency the doctor perscribes, you can just go to a naturopath to get shots in between.

      Hope that helps.

    Sarah,

    your 133 count is low. Were you tested for Pernicious Anemia and Intrinsic Factor?  If you haven’t, I would insist on it.

    Research Pernicious Anemia and Intrinsic Factor Antibody.  There is a Pernicious Anemia Support Group on Facebook that has valuable information on how to manage you physician and your medical care.

    Hi sarah,

    My experince seems a lot similar to yours, I feel like I am going crazy!

    My doctors refuses to do anymore for me even though my b12 level was low, so please let me know if you manage to get through to them! I was also told I had anxiety and also pseudo dimentia. And my husband also thinks im a hypochondriac
