Last summer I was found to be b12 deficient (level at 180) I had symptoms of neuropathy and was at the end of my tether after years of being on antidepressants and having results of vit d and folic acid deficiency at various times.
I had the standard loading dose, felt some improvement but felt I could have done with a few more to continue getting better. However I played ball with what the go wanted.
Whilst waiting for my 1 shot every 3 months I moved house (and gp) they insisted on checking my b12 before giving me an injection. My b12 was 435 (November 3 months after my loading doses and further oral supplements). My gp said all was fine, I did not need treatment, even though I still have neuropathy symptoms. I went back to the gp in February at which time, I was put back on antidepressants.
I have had 3 months taking this awful medication that makes me feel worse, I demanded another blood test. My b12 had dropped to 345 since November. But the go has said I definitely do not have b12 issues.
I'm feeling pretty upset and despondent as feel that I will have to be on my knees in the next year or 2 for them to finally agree with me....but the gp has already started to talk about chronic fatigue, rather than find a solution to help me.
