I have recently been diagnosed with 'marginally' low B12 levels at around 147. The Doctor told me the acceptable level was 150. However, I am suffering. Light heads and dizziness; tingling in hands and feet and more recently lethargy. The Doctor told me my level was not low enough to warrant injections and to 'eat more omelettes'! As I am allergic to eggs I started to take B12 Jarrow supplements but the symptoms have persisted and actually got worse earlier this week. I returned to Doctor today and he said he thinks I have acute anxiety. I am pretty sure I do not and told him so and he, reluctantly, revisited the issue of my B12 levels and has given me a B12 injection and taken bloods to test my absorption levels. I have to confess to feeling a tad confused!
Can I ask if 147 is marginally low?
And what would people recommend I do if the results come back okay but the symptoms persist?
