I've recently been diagnosed with B12 deficiency and due to start my loading dose tomorrow. My GP has also taken blood to determine whether I have PA.
I must admit that I never realised just how poorly a low B12 can make you feel. I have many of the symptoms of low B12 including extreme fatigue, depression, confusion, bladder and bowel urgency and some days, stumble around, almost falling over. I also have nerve pain in my neck and down my right arm and wake up most nights with numb forearms and hands. When I have relayed all these symptoms to my GP, she seems only interested in treating the depression with anti depressants. The other symptoms are dismissed as she says that my B12 isn't that low (163). I'm also experiencing chronic insomnia and nosebleeds.
I really can't wait to start my treatment as have never felt this ill before. So glad to have found this great site too and look forward to getting to know you all.
