This first post bears a remarkable resemblance to your earlier 'first post' and the follow-up to it.

It makes it much easier to keep track if you keep everything in one thread.

Hi Holehead. Please see replies to your earlier posts for analysis of blood results and suggestions for you to follow.

It's also worth noting that anxiety and depression are potential symptoms of B12 deficiency which, as discussed previously, you do have.

Might be worth keeping an eye on your earlier posts as people might still add to fbirder says, it's easier to keep track of things if the same questions are only in one place. But of course, if you have new questions, post these in 'new' posts 😀.

As suggested previously, good idea to chase your GP for treatment of your B12 deficiency...will make a big difference in terms of improving the symptoms you currently have.

Good luck.
