Have posted before, but need to know a couple of things.
My daughter had her b12 tested (again) on the day she had her injection, (before jab). She was unwell and tired as usual with all the usual symptoms, but the test came back 2000. I've read about functional deficiency, and TC11 problems. I need to know what tests she needs to have for the doctor to determine actually why the level reads high and yet she is constantly tired, physically and mentally, why she gets very down and stressed and has the throat problems, getting worse and worse leading up to the injections..which she has at about 7-8 weeks. Apparently her folate is ok. When on the original 12 weeks she still got unwell at about 7 weeks and spent the next five weeks becoming even worse.
If the levels are high and still having symptoms, is choosing to have monthly injections going to be helpful. After all if the levels are already this high with 7 weekly, how would it help. Would it just push the level higher, and then doesn't it affect folate levels. I am quite willing to give b12 in closer stages, but need to know how effective it would be.
Also she is just starting contraceptive pill and so would that cause further problems or confuse the issue.
Nurse said the doctor thinks she should stop b12 for a few months to see what happens. Not in favour.
Than you, in advance.
