I have had the results of my blood tests back and the B12 is 557. So high in the range.
I had only stopped taking Berocca for one week beforehand. The doctor has of course said no further action is needed despite my symptoms. My tongue blistered within 2 days of stopping the Berocca. It's been doing that for 10 years but I only just read about B12.
I spoke to Martyn Hooper on the PA Society line and he said to show the GP the new guidelines. Especially as I have lots of the symptoms and a family history of the disease.
I wrote a covering letter and took in the new guidelines a week ago and have heard nothing. I'll make an appointment and chase it up. I have a horrible feeling I'm going to be laughed out of the surgery with a B12 reading of 557.
Has anyone else been in this situation?
I feel my symptoms have worsened in the fortnight I've been off the Berocca (high B vit supplement) but of course this could be in my head.
