I think I read somewhere that periods of high stress can reduce our B12 levels, is that right? I am on B12 shots every 3 weeks (have been doing this for about 6-9 months). I have had a very stressful couple of months and I just went through my lab results and noticed that the most recent test (a few weeks ago) was a lower result than the previous couple of months. Also, I am due for my next shot this Thursday but I have been noticing the deficiency symptoms coming on since Sunday. Do doctors prescribe extra B12 during stressful periods? I know that I am already getting shots fairly frequently. I am also on iron supplements daily. Or anything else you recommend (besides trying to reduce stress in the first place - it simply wasn't possible the last couple of months but is starting to get better now)? I imagine exercise, prayer/meditation etc but anything else?
