I have been b12 deficient for at 7 years as well with 2 mthfr mutations. The first three years where nausea dizziness fatigue and abdominal pain. My gp didn't catch it even though running alot of tests. Then I was given some steroids which now have found out reduce your b12 which caused a almost acute attack I started having nystagmus which has been constant confusion disorientation memory issues personality changes for the last three years the last year I have had severe numbness in knees ankles difficulty walking and dementia type symptoms my neurologist started giving me shots 3 months ago and I'm taking metafolin. Over all I feel a little better still have good and bad days. My question I guess is I'm still getting anemic feeling in fact when I was on folic acid instead of metafolin I was anemic to point of difficulty swallowing. But that went a way after starting metafolin and a little iron. Today I feel anemic weakness
