Hi I am new to this site and after some information/advice.
I have been extremely exhausted for over a year and my symptoms have got worse, to the point were I am off work at present. I feel weak, limbs ache, pins and needles especially on a night in feet, like a burning fuzzy sensation. I get out of breath walking upstairs, constantly feel weak, ringing in ears. The list could go on. I've had numerous blood tests and for the vitamin b12 always got that it was in normal range from the GP, it did come back that my vit D was severely low at 6 and was given loading dose for that and I have to be re-tested next week, however I haven't had much improvement in my symptoms and now they are looking at chronic fatigue syndrome, however I recently got some private bloods done to look at thyroid and the also tested vit b12 which was 243 ng/l ( range 197-771) I rang my doctors and asked what my B12 was in March and that was 290ng/l (range 190-1000). Therefore it is falling. My question is, is this value low enough to be treated or do I just accept that these levels are normal, as the doctors say. If not is there any research out there in which I can take to GPs to show them I am entitled to be treated for low levels of B12 if this is the case why I am having these symptoms.
