My recent B-12 level was 170 ng/l ( range 120-900) My ferritin is 11 ng/ml (15-300)and folate is also 11 ug/L (2.9-9999) For the past year my MCH level has been above the range 33.3pg (27-32) and MPV sitting around 99.8 fl (80-100) My last Vit D level was 22.
However haemoglobin is 128 g/L (115-165) I have also had low calcium.
I do have adenomyosis and am currently dealing with an eating disorder. However even before my ED my B-12 was 212 at its highest. My ferritin level has dropped to single digits and I have been taking iron supplements from the doctor but it never seems to improve. I am also pescatarian.
In the last few weeks my symptoms have worsened. I have been getting palpitations, extreme fatigue, fogginess, feeling like I’m floating, dizzy, confusion, tintinus, muscle weakness esp in legs and hands, eye twitching, nausea, depression/anxiety/tingling in hands and feet, feeling very cold, bleeding gums, vision issues, stomach pain, sore mouth (ulcers). I also have Raynaulds pretty bad (everyday) some of these are chronic and some are new or worsening.
The list goes on. I’ve been asked to discuss my recent blood results next week with my GP. However I think he is going to only concentrate on the iron. I have mentioned b12 to other GP’s before and they fob me off with, you’re in range blah blah
I am aware that my eating issues aren’t helping but I can’t just up my diet and surely they can’t suggest that to me? Do I have cause with my ED to ask for injections? I am in mind to just ask for a referral to a blood specialist and go privately because I am beginning to feel really unwell.
Any advice would’ve appreciated
