Booksellercate wrote about 7 months ago on this subject and I too am wondering if anyone got any further with this.
My blood pressure when deficient in B12 at 146 and folate at 5.6 was typically always around 106/60. This was assessed over many days.
Treatment with injections and oral B12 did not impact blood pressure one bit. B12 steadied at around 800 and folate dropped to around 3.1.
Whilst at these levels I went for a colonoscopy to asses for Crohns (negative) and my blood pressure was as before, low end of normal.
10 days later B12 rose to 1150 and folate rose to around 8.6. Several days later I felt light headed and thinking my blood pressure had dropped, I tested it only to find it was around 139/93. It has stayed consistently at this elevated level for 3 weeks now. I am 47.
No sign of a virus and stress levels are probably lower than ever. Potassium levels have always been mid range.
I am not diabetic but it looks as though I have SIBO, although this is yet to be confirmed.
I have never exhibited clear signs of megaloblastic anaemia thought to be because folate was also lower end of normal.
Has anyone any thoughts about what might be going on?
I have arranged a GP call for Wednesday afternoon. I see my gastroenterologist on the 31st after he returns from holiday.
