Did you get copies of your blood test results ? Drs will very often say normal when you're at the bottom of the range. You can get B12 deficiency symptoms ( and Vit D and iron deficiencies) when you're at the bottom end of the "normal" range

My private blood tests said B12 low ( and I had symptoms) but GP said within range. I chose to self inject and a lot if the symptoms ---- hand tremor, shortness of breath ( which was extreme) and tinnitus went first.

Worth getting copies to check your levels.


Will definitely get them and post them on here.


Hi, did your Dr prescribe just 1 Dihydracodiene ? That doesn't sound much for severe pain, I take three a day sometimes when the pain is really bad, paracetamol do nothing for me, check with your Dr, also those lights with headaches could be migraine, Take care


Ye he has said start at 1 a day then go on to 2 if I need too I've been taking the 1 for a wk then I'm gonna go to 2 I work so I'm just getting used to the 1first, I'm not getting migraines its the light I can't tolerate bright lights.
