Hi I'm new here and just wanted to give a brief background. I had my son 9 months ago and since then have been feeling very up and down physically and mentally. I'm still exclusively breastfeeding him. I've had panic and anxiety attacks, anxiety has been horrendous, to the point I've thought I'm going crazy. I've had awful heart palpitations that come and go, but have been told it's due to the anxiety and that there isn't a problem. I've been off balance, irritable, and generally depressed, and brain fog and light headed. I was tested for numerous different things as i was convinced it was my thyroid out of whack since giving birth. Everything came back okay except for Folic Acid levels. They were low at 3.0. But b12 was high, possibly due to supplements I'd started taking a few days before.
Could it really be something as simple as a Folic Acid deficiency that has been the reason behind all of these symptoms? I am really shocked. Has anyone noticed a difference in symptoms since taking Folic Acid? Especially heart palpitations.
