I have been reading a lot of the great advice on here and learning a lot of information. I have had an insidious onset of symptoms ie migraines, feeling tired, sleeping lots, pins and needles in legs, muscle pain and weakness, brain fogs and memory loss. GP happy hypothyroid under control, treating me for iron deficiency Haemoglobin 10.3, ferritin 6 and iron 3l. MCV microcytic.
B12 is 201 (range 180-2000), serum folate 5.4 (range 2.8-20).
GP decided my symptoms are psychosomatic which is condescending and will only treat B12 when it falls out of range. My confusion is that I want my B12 def to be on record as feel only way it will be taken seriously but would I be risking permanent damage if I wait a few months.
The difficulty is treating the blood results and not the symptoms. Thank you for any advice.
