Around August 2016 I found out that my B12 serum level was very low, in the low 200's. After doing some research, I'm almost positive that years and years of Nexium was the culprit. My other labs pointed to that as well from what I could tell - low RBC, low hemoglobin, high MCV. I was amazed at how many of the symptoms that I have been feeling for so long could be attributed to low B12!
Unfortunately, I began supplementing and my B12 is now extremely high (>2000 according to my last test) yet I still feel feel the same symptoms with barely any relief, if any. Also, I my anemia has only improved just a tiny bit.
My symptoms were and continue to be: shortness of breath (hard to take a deep satisfying breath), fatigue, anxiety, sleeping issues, memory issues, hand tremors, cold hands/feet and the hardest to live with in my eyes, stuttering. It is like I am now afraid to speak to people. Also, just a little bit of alcohol, and my symptoms intensify ten fold for the next 3 days.
Since my B12 levels are so high now, my symptoms must stem from something else? Could injections help me? Do I need to throw in methylfolate into the mix?
