I only heard of B12 deficiency 2 weeks ago.
18 months ago I had a swollen leg, was told it was ‘fat deposits no treatment’ (not my GP) Since then I have had a lot of cramp and some pain in it, it has lost some feeling, hot water feels tepid. My hand gets cramp too and pins and needles. I did nothing about it.
2 weeks ago I felt very wobbly, faint and slightly sick. My GP he gave me a blood test and phoned me the result. B12 – 103, the rest ok. Since I had not heard of it I did not know what to ask.
I have had 5 injections (only 5 allowed in my county) and feel just as bad. I was told by the practice nurse that they would be in touch in 6 months’ time.
I eat a plenty of cheese, butter, milk, meat and eggs, so my diet should be ok.
What will happen next? What do I ask my GP.
