2 months ago I asked to have my bloods tested due to a long list of symptoms including constant pins and needles in arms and legs as well as shooting pains.
My results for my b12 came back as 167ng but the docs have said this is 'normal' and that I would not have any symptoms relating to b12 at that level. I have asked for treatment to see how I get on and they have refused and do not seem at all interested in my symptoms. I am worried if left untreated the pains will become permanent and at the age of 25 this is not the way I want to be for the rest of my life.
My question is what can I do to try and get this resolved - do I need further testing? I have also paid to see a private GP and they also said my levels were normal but wasn't able to give me an alternative diagnosis.
The doctors have given me 3 months worth of Iron tablets and said 'see how I get on' but after 2 months of taking these tablets nothing has changed and its a 6 week waiting list to see my GP.
Any comments would be much appreciated.
