I was diagnosed B12 deficient in July with a result of 106 (198 or less being deficient) and given a high dose of iron tablets as my ferritin level was 8. I had 3 monthly injections (no loading injections) and gradually felt abit better by October with the tingling sensations largely going at that stage.
The tingling, dizziness and exhaustion are now back and I am returning again to my GP on Tuesday as I feel I need some sort of regular treatment, or at least the assurance I am on a 3 month maintenance cycle. As of November my B12 was at 400 and my ferritin 30 so my GP felt I wasn't ready for another injection despite symptoms coming back.
Does anyone have any links to NICE guidelines etc or any insight into what I should be saying to my GP? I believed that once you start treatment the readings are more or less academic as it's the symptoms that count, but anything official you could point me to would be much appreciated.
Wishing you all a symptom-free and happy Christmas. Many thanks.
