I was diagnosed with B12 deficiency in May 2016. Had my loading doses and have continued to have 12 weekly injections, however I have continued to have pain in my hands, back, legs and feet. My muscles feel so weak that I struggle washing my hair in the shower and the fatigue is horrendous to the point I rarely leave the house at weekends as I just don't have the energy to do anything.
After a recent blood test I have now been diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency too and have been put on a 3 month course of supplements. My doctor didn't speak to me but just got the receptionist to call me to collect a prescription so I never got a chance to ask some questions and thought someone here will be able to help me.
Firstly, how long until my symptoms subside? Will I have to continue taking supplements after the 3 months? Will the supplements ease my fatigue? Could there be an underlying issue that stops me absorbing vitamins? Is there another supplement I should take to aide absorption?
Thanks in advance
