So a couple of weeks ago I discovered my b12 was 131 ng/L and my doctor refused to inject me. Since beginning of May (6 and a half months ago) I have been having weak hands, it was hurting to type, and text. I was waking up screaming because of the wrist pain and was falsely diagnosed with carpel tunnel syndrome. Recently the nerve pain spread to my feet and then entire body. (along with heart palpitations,confusion, dry mouth, sore neck, weird pressure at the base of my skull/ back of neck, a fuzzy feeling in my head). I started supplementing on b12 a month ago and most of these symptoms have gone away, except for some nerve pain but it has lessened! However my hands (fingers, wrists, arms) still hurt when I use them too much.
I don't have any other medical conditions that I'm aware of other than Irritable bowel syndrome (I just get diarrhoea a lot). Also I've been vegetarian for years, however I eat eggs regularly. Here is my blood test but its normal enough, except for macrocytosis and b12 is low, though doctor told me it wasn't low. Does anyone else have IBS? I'm wondering if this could cause a deficiency.
Also does anyone else experience pain in their hands/wrists? I mean not just numbness/pins and needles, but actual pain that's makes household chores difficult. My arms have been much more affected than my legs, which seems uncommon. I was feeling like a 90 year old woman while struggling to text on my phone. (I am 25)
