I have been reading a lot of information regarding B12 deficiency since my doctor request blood tests for this but am having trouble understanding it all. Can someone suggest if I need to request any other tests or what I can do to get the NHS to take action as I feel so rubbish.
My thyroid test came back normal and so did my B12 and folate test, but when I requested to see my results my B12 is 206 and my Serum Folate is 5.3 and I believe this is low?
My symptoms include bad fatigue, dead legs, dizziness, loss of feeling in hands, brittle nails, loose bowels and I have suffered depression for the last year with no cause (this was treated with antidepressants and counselling although the councillor also agreed there was no obvious cause?
Any help would be appreciated before my next doctors appointment, I am going to ask if they will please still treat me for B12 deficiency although according to NHS guidelines I am in the normal range.
