I have many symptoms of B12/iron deficiency including 'pins and needles' in feet & hands, extreme fatigue (can sleep 12+ hrs a day), shortness of breath, dizziness, sometimes fall, occasional depression, restless leg, and chew on ice all day. I have been taking meds for reflux for 8+ years. I had bloodwork done and B12 came back at 276 and Folate at 18. I was told this is within normal limits. The only thing that came back abnormal in CBC was Lymphs at 3.4 which may be due to arthritis or (I was told) fighting an infection.
I am 55 yr old female. I've had anemia in the past (late teens, early 20's) and this feels very similar. My doctor acts like this is all in my head. Any suggestions on where to go from here? Are there additional tests that would help? Is it time to seek out a new doctor?
