Would very much appreciate any advice and links about high MCV and MCH to take to gp. Have experienced fatigue, swimming head, severe balance problems and shortness of breath for a year. Serum b12 was 420 then 518 after eating liver regularly. Had been taking methyl b12 but made balance worse, hydroxocobalamin sublinguals have very recently improved balance problem so I can function again but shortness of breath and fatigue still there.
Only read last night about MCV and MCH possibly indicating b12 deficiency if they are higher but can't find anything on internet that mentions actual readings. Mine are 95.3 (80-100) and 32.2 (27 - 32).
Folate is good at 19 but ferritin 37 so I've started on iron supplements. Vitamin D 70 (30-300).
Would prefer an actual diagnosis and injections through surgery than to go it alone. GP refused to start trial of injections based on my balance issue as b12 had increased from previous blood test. Have also considered asking to be referred to either haemotologist or gastroenterologist. Has anyone had success with either?
Thanks in advance.
