Hi. Thank you for the add. I'd like to share my story with you to see whether you think I am barking up the wrong tree with b12 deficiency.
I am 34 mum of 3. I haven't felt 'Right' since my second child was born 4 years ago and have since had another baby and beast fed for 2 years. I have had unexplained out of character anxiety and panic attacks and very low energy.
In December of last year I woke with severe vertigo. I was diagnosed with labrynthitis ( inner ear infection) and told to rest. Since then have been unable to drive and work and have been pretty much house bound. I was then diagnosed with migraine associated vertigo and put on amitriptyline ( anti depressant migraine preventative) which am responding to but continue to have attacks. . They don't know what's triggering it. My b12 is 385 so in middle of my range but a lot of symptoms I have are those of b12 and I scored 90 on the test on here. My symptoms are. ..
Vertigo, constant off balance, feel drained, light sensitivity, headache, tinnitus, tingling fingers and lips , numb face, memory problems, struggle finding words, brain fog, heavy painful periods, short of breath, palpitations, high resting heart beat, spotty arms, world feels surreal, diarrhoea, anxiety, disturbed sleep, wake up groggy. I also feel better after I eat, especially meat, and struggle if I don't eat every few hours. Anyway, am interested to hear your thought as I know my b12 doesn't seem too low at 385. Am desperately trying to find what's triggering all these symptoms as they overlap into many different things
In addition I also suffer with endometriosis which I am being treated with the mini pill.
I have my levels and other results
My results were tsh 2.69 ( 0.2-4.0)
T4 12.2 ( 9.0-19.0)
Ferrotin 72 (10-220)
B12 385 (187-883)
Folate 9.5 (3.1-20.5)
Not sure what any if this means as everything is within range
