Morning All. Newly prescribed vitamin B compound strong tablets. To be honest I didn't know very much about B12 deficiency. Having now looked on the net and on reading members posts I can see how easily I dismissed symptoms and thank goodness for a GP whom I don't normally see checking my haemoglobin and B12. I have had strange things happening to my hands for a long while, my fingers will suddenly contort, like a spasm and sometimes very painful, I now have pins and needles running down my left arm into my ring finger and my fingers go all tingling/numb like. This is increasing and because I felt 'not quite right' and tired all the time I visited the GP. Apparently my blood count was low back in March of this year when I went docs complaining then of feeling tired and a bit dizzy. It has dropped 7 more points since then My concern is the Intrinsic Factor, I have been on Omeprazole since my heart valve replacement in 2003, yes 13 years, and had no idea that these are normally given as an 8 week course. My doctor said nothing about stopping the Omeprazole. Do you think it would be a good idea to ask GP about these meds.
