I’m looking for some advice.
A number of years ago, I went to my then GP because I had a number of tiny ulcers all over my tongue (double figures). He ran some blood tests and diagnosed me with a B12 deficiency. He prescribed me with B12 supplements for 6 weeks (cannot remember doseage or frequency) but I took as prescribed and had a boood yest again which showed no improvement. The GP explained about intrinsic factor and then advised of the need for injections starting with the loading doses then 12 weekly.
I swapped GPs when I moved and this was never questions, injections were given as normal until a new surgery took over who insisted on running a blood test. The first one they did was immediately after a shot which would obviously show my levels as being fine. I insisted on another when my 12 weeks were up and they did another, still saying they were fine and I no longer required the injections. This was around a year ago.
Is it possible to recover? I definitely felt better after my injection. I can’t remember the last time I felt well rested. I’m often wanting to go sleep around 9pm and even if I get 8 hours sleep I still feel shattered.
I’ve tried exercising to see if that helps but I still feel shattered. I’m become short of breath in exercise quickly and it doesn’t seem to be easing the more I do...I would have thought I’d have gotten use to it.
I’ve just been reading through some of the other symptoms and tinnitus/irritability were on there. I get ringing in my ears sometimes and my mood is definitely up and down, more so when I’m tired. I’ve always put my mood down to hormonal contraception before but I don’t remember always feeling so moody.
Does anyone have any advice? Or experience?
