Hi everyone, I'new to this forum but not to healthunlocked
I'm really struggling right now.
I broke my leg in 3 places back in aug and have been in and out of hospital having surgery.
I now have restless legs which I get every single night.
Prior to the accident, a blood test showed B12 as 400 (can't find range but it was something like 200-900) I also had low ferritin at 15, but after supplements I've got it to 64 (still too low in my opinion)
My GP says my B12 is fine and won't acknowledge that the NHS test shows both active and inactive B12.
I have all the symptoms. I am so tired! have brain fog and so many other issues. I also have complex regional pain syndrome resulting from the accident and wonder if low B12 has played a part as it's nerve related.
I'd like to know what people think.
I'm due to see the neurology dept at the hospital next week, and I want to ask for lots of tests.
Can I get B12 injections outside of NHS and what is the protocol, and more importantly the cost!
Any help much appreciated. Thanks
