Hi knowledgable people.
Briefly I joined the group after visiting my GP in September with peripheral neuropathy probably for at least a year. Blood tests indicated borderline b12 deficiency at 180 and folate slightly low. So began on loading doses and after a battle with different GP's managed to have 16 injections and took folic acid for a month too. I was also referred to neurologist who is sending me for nerve conduction tests soon.
I have been back to GP today, because she I feel exhausted and the neuropathy has returned, even my lips feel numb! My last b12 was given on 20 November. My GP wants to recheck FBC and B12 before he agrees to further B12 injection.
Going back in 3 days.
Question in view of symptoms can I request one anyway? I thought that rechecking b12 would be of no benefit? False results?
