after a blood test last October I was diagnosed with vitamin b12 and folate deficiency. Earlier in the year I had been experiencing extreme tiredness and fatigue was upset all the time and had been diagnosed with depression. I was pleased when my doctors had identified I had a b12 deficiency as they explained that could have been the cause of my depression.
I was prescribed Cyanocobalamin and was taking this up until the end of April this year. I was given a blood test just after I had stopped taking it and was told this was now in the normal range (a score of 250) and that I didn't need any further treatment.
I had been feeling ok for a little while but for the last month or so I have been feeling very tired again. I have been experiencing numbness in my hands and feet and am finding it hard to concentrate at work and am experiencing regular headaches. In the 7 months I had been taking Cyanocobalamin I have gained 3 stone in weight and I can't put this down to over eating. I have been trying to lose some of this weight over the last month (whilst making sure I am still maintaining good sources of vitamin b12) and by exercising but I don't seem to be able to lose the weight. I'm not sure what to do. Can anyone provide some advice??
