Hi all, I am a 37 year old man with high serum folate levels of 26 and low b12 levels of 227 (doctor says in normal range). I suffer with crohns disease and can't store b12 due to a bowel resection. So far I have suffered fatigue, dizziness, chest pain, shallow breathing, heart palpitations, confusion in my head at times and to top it off I now am suffering from a blocked left ear. I have had 3 Ecgs at hospital now and all apparently show heart is fine. Also had chest xray which shows nothing out of the ordinary. This time 4 weeks ago when I had my first palpitations I was running 4 miles every other day and swimming twice a week. Now I get out of breath really easy just walking. I have been put on a series of b12 injections and it will be my 4th tomorrow. I pray I feel a difference soon. Does this sound like pernicious anemia and how many jabs does it take for an improvement? Has anyone else felt like this? Thanks for reading this and feel free to reply
