Hi I am new to this forum
Recently been diagnosed with B12 deficiency it is 135. I am 76 and have been having symptoms for over 15 years first referred to Neurology in 2003 where I was told I was expecting too much of myself - main symptom at that time was loss of balance. Gradually over the years balance and walking has deteriorated - 2 years ago returned to my Doctor who has taken me seriously and again back to Neurology and Cardiology. All come back as being OK but apparently a B12 test was done and my level at that time was 180 so bottom of the scale . Then it was suggested possible CFS/ME but only borderline.
Recently I was referred by my optician to Ophthalmology to check for possible Glaucoma (which I don't have) and in talking about general health it was the Ophthalmology consultant who suggested B12 deficiency! and she arranged the blood test then and there.
Just started on the B12 injections 6 over 2 weeks and just had the blood test for Intrinsic Factor and waiting for the result. I suppose my question is should I supplement my injections with either sub lingual tablets and or a spray of Methylcobalamin.
