Morning everyone ☺
Due to the support gained from my first post, here I am again... This site is more informative than my GP surgery.
So here I am one week on from starting my loading doses... I have had an outbreak of spots, muscle weakness, upset tummy, nausea and pins and needles since this treatment began but believe me I keep the end in site and hope that I will be feeling better soon....
however, I have just contacted my GP surgery and it my results for antibodies/intrinsic factor is normal...
however my B12 was 152 and I was having a lot of symptoms such as dizziness, exhaustion, blurred vision, tingling in fingers etc...
The gp has said I will receive a year of treatment then that will be it if my vit b12 levels are normal. My concerns are that why am I lacking b12 in the first place. I am 31.
I was diagnosed with ibs at 13 and have tried my best to control my diet since, however I now know their is a link between celiacs and b12 deficiency and on top of that the symptoms of ibs are similar to that of celiacs disease. Could I have been misdiagnosed?
The other thing is I had campylobactor food poisoning last year and ended up in hospital for 4 days. Could this be linked ?.
Feel like the gp has just accepted that I need the treatment to pacify me but has no concern as to why I was low in first place where as I am eager to know what has caused all these symptoms. I know b12 deficient at this time but why is the question x
thanks in advance to all xx
