I have been worried about my vit b12 levels for a while now. When I have it it tested its been around 166 - 174 and the doctor says it's fine. I have several symptoms which would suggest low vit b12 including memory loss, brain fog, numb lips, sore tongue, cold hands and feet, tingling toes and tinnitus. I also had a scan last year for something else that showed an enlarged spleen. I also had a low folate just below reference range - I don't have the figure but might be 5.
I finally got Fed up and went and had a private active b12 test which was 20. The lower limit is 25. When I took the result to my GP they didn't know about the test and said I needed to get further tests including another serum vit b12. I now have to wait for results then GP seeking advice from haematologist.
Does anyone have any Advice? I just want treated for this and hopefully start to feel better.
