I had B12 blood test results come back showing a level of 319. My symptoms have been severe fatigue, headaches, migraines, depression, anxiety and I would like to try the b12 injections to see if they help but doc refused as said my levels fall within normal range and the other tests were ok showing blood cels normal size etc, though tests for antinuclear factor came back as potentially abnormal and he referred me to a rhumatologist. I explained about the info in the bma review paper about the b12 test results not always being reliable and that is recommended to treat if the symptoms suggest poss b12 deficiency but he wouldn't budge on it. All I want to do is try the injections to see if they help so feel v frustrated as am desperate to feel better and am also 32 weeks pregnant. Wondered if worth pursuing it with my usual gp as the one I saw yesterday was a locum, or am I just as likely to get fobbed off? Grateful for any advice or other info I can print off and take to show gp. Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom!
