Hi All, I'm hoping someone can help me.
Over 5 years ago I started to become very tired and exhausted, blood tests were done and B12 levels were at 175. I was given b12 tablets and my levels went to 210, however the exhaustion continued and got worse.
I was then diagnosed with CFS, at this point I couldn't get out of bed, slept for almost 20hrs a day and if it wasn't for my husband would of stank and not eaten.
I lost over a stone and half in weight (5ft 8 and 9 stone) and looked anorexic. over the next 5 years I have slowly got better and can potter, my sports days are over and work isn't possible. Prior to this I hadn't seen a doctor in 4 yrs as I was healthy and had no problems.
I've noticed in some countries that they say B12 should be min 500 whereas UK is 200. over the years my levels have been around 220, could I simply have a B12 deficiency?
I do take a vitamin supplement each day with had B12 in.
Thanks for reading
