So, I've been feeling increasingly rubbish for the last 6-12 months - dizziness, tiredness, panic attacks, burning skin and so on. The whole thing got significantly worse after some minor surgery about 3 months ago (I don't know whether I had nitrous oxide or not).
At first the GP thought it was stress (I am going through a difficult patch to be honest) and possibly silent migraines, in the end I saw a new GP as my regular one was away who did a batch of blood tests to rule out anything physical before 'writing it off' as stress. Turns out I have low Vitamin D (33, should be 50+) and also slightly elevated lymphocytes (only slightly, so he thinks it could be a post viral thing).
I was convinced it was going to be B12 - all the symptoms match! Foolishly (or out of desperation!) I started the sublingual spray a month or so before the blood tests were done. So my B12 levels are, according to my GP, normal - 499 against a range of 191 to 663.
He has agreed to test me again in 6 months if I stop taking the spray, as he agreed it could be the spray elevating levels whilst still not being able to use the B12 properly, so he's obviously open minded about it all which is great.
So my question is...
Could taking the spray (Better You B12 Boost, 1200) have raised my levels that much?
On the one hand I really want to get tested when I'm 'clear' of the supplement, on the other I'm worried about stopping them for 6 months, I might feel even worse
