After I got my blood tests done on Monday I started to take the folic acid tablets I bought, 5mg ones, one per day. My plasma folate level was just in range ( 5ng/mL [4 - 20] - purkiss.com/blood_test_resu... ) but from what I was reading it needs to be at 15 for the B12 to 'work' properly so I thought this would boost it up.
Now a few days later I've developed brown marks on my upper lip and it feels weird. I'm going to stop taking the folic acid, but it could also be the different food I'm eating now I've given up the gluten again, although that's hard as even the bag of mixed seeds I have from the health shop says "packed in a facility along with wheat and gluten products" - so hard to get gluten-free!!
Anyway was wondering whether this was anything recognisable by others so thought I'd post, hope y'all doing as well as can be, just done my 15th daily injection of B12 in a row so getting there I think, at least I can focus for longer than a few seconds now, although if I do anything like go shopping or stress out about anything my B12 runs out very quickly!
