Its good to be back :). As I had mentioned earlier, I was in India for a proper diagnosis of my condition and had a battery of tests done during the past 3 weeks to arrive at the exact cause. I had my MRI,EEG,serum B12, Active B12, IF antibody, gluten sensitivity, TSH, complete blood count and immunological profiling done. The good news is that the neurologist ruled out any damage/shrinking of the brain and diseases like MS and Chron's. Following are my test results and I'll need help in deciphering the results.
MRI/EEG - normal (that's what the neuro said)
Serum b12 - 1084 pg/ml
Active b12 - 184 pMol/L (range 25-165)
IF antibody - negative - 10.79 units (<20: negative)
Complete Blood Count - normal
TSH - 7
Folic acid - >20 ng/ml
Anti TPO antibodies - positive 118 (>34: positive)
Immunological profile - Normal
So basically the Neurologist told me not to worry and called it not that big a deal. Forgetfulness is pretty common and happens all the time. He also hinted at a possibility of it happening as I might be overthinking about it(stopped short of calling it a OCD).However, as you can easily get methylcobalamin injections in India and I didn't wanted to take a chance, I went ahead and implored him to inject me. I had a 1000 ug methylcobalamin injection and came back to US yesterday. Now honestly after getting injected the brain fog has increased a little with confusion setting in. My question to you guys is that even after 6 months of supplementation, coupled with healthy b12 ranges, haven't helped with the symptoms. From the results do you see something else that might be the culprit? Have I been knocking the wrong door all this time? Just for reference, I am having only memory/cognitive issues. No balance/coordination /fatigue/ palpitations etc.
