I orgionally posted on here a while ago as Ive had a number of different symptoms and have thought it could be a B deficency.
Anyway, I had an Active B12 test and it came back within range so I thought nothing much else of it. Yet my symptoms remained. I then thought it could be iron (similar symptoms). Anyway I had a test which looks for various things and most came back ok. However, there were a few things that were out, but the important one was from the Full Blood Count. My MCV was out the range by 1 sitting at 100. Again, I thought nothing of it when I got the results, and thought 1 is nothing. But from what ive read and been told, 1 on that blood test scale is a lot and indicated large blood cells (larger than they should be). After talking with two ONLINE doctors, they've both said they believe its related to a B deficency, maybe B1 or B2 I think?
Anyway. I thought why might I be deficent? I drink around 40-50 units a week, over two nights. So this would be the obvious reason as otherwise I have a good diet and dont smoke. I have a high protein diet.
Anyways some of the symptoms include restless legs (something that come on in the last 2 years).
Grey hairs appearing (last 6 month)
Nail lunas gone and ridges now forming
No sex drive or erections
Depression / Anxiety at times
Have had sleeping problem (magnesium has helped with this though)
I also have vitiligo (but have had it since young)
Anyway, its been frustrating that I've been doing these tests knowing something was clearly wrong and didnt know what, at least this seems to point to which although not exactly which of the B's it is. I can rule out B12 I guess as that seemed ok.
So, what next? Im not taking 2 B complex supplement per day. I will try to limit my beer also, although its something I enjoy.
I was told that the symptoms should go away after around 5 or 6 months? Ive been taking the B complex for about 2 months so far.
Will appriciate some advice and tips and more.
