I have been recently diagnosed with B12 deficiency after blood tests to check my thyroid as I have pretty much all the symptoms of an under active thyroid. Thyroid is fine apparently, folate levels are fine but B12 isn't. The GP has put me on cyanocobalamin tablets - 50micrograms three times a day. I feel like crap - I guess from reading a few posts, most of you feel like that! Can anyone tell me how long it will be before I start to feel the effects of the meds?
I am also struggling to lose weight - it goes on very easily tho! Is this a symptom of PA? I go to the gym several times a week when I can (energy levels permitting!!) and my appetite is not great but I eat healthy food for the most part. A session on the treadmill makes me feel good at the time but I pay for it afterwards lol!
I am also on anti depressants and there has been a lot going on the last 18 months, culminating in the loss of my mum in March to bowel cancer. I thought the way I was feeling was all stress-related and I think the stress has exacerbated my symptoms.
I just feel like I've lost "me" somewhere along the way and feel so low and exhausted all the time. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on anything else I can do to feel better? I'm 48, over a stone heavier than I am comfortable with and struggling with work as my mind seems to be in a constant fog these days!!
