I recently went to my GP as i was constantly extremely tired, suffering with cramps in my leg, falling over my own feet and feeling weakness in my legs and occasionally pins and needles. Naturally i was concerned as my Father had MS. I went for some blood tests and the results were that my Folate levels were low. They did not explain much more than that and asked me to collect a prescription of Folic Acid urgently.
My question is:
Do I have a B12 deficiency?
Should my doctor have spoken to me after he saw my blood works rather than a receptionist over the phone?
How quickly after taken these tables should I start to feel an improvement?
Not sure if this is the right place to get these questions answered and sorry if it isn't (thought it may be worth a try as I am feeling a little in the dark with it all).
