Hi looking for advice , I asked the doctor due to a recent alopecia outbreak if I could get the b12 injections , but for the past year id been going back and forth with all the symptoms of b12 deficiency ( not realising at the time ) , I was given these b12 jabs when I had my last outbreak of alopecia and low immune system 10 years ago , whilst traveling in nz , I was given the blood test and advised I did need b12 , I recieved the loading doses and after a few weeks I felt like the old me again ,the pain , the breathlessness , the pins and needles , the low mood all miraculously cleared , I was advised to get them every 3 months .
3 wks later I'm feeling the symptoms re appear , I then was told I needed iron tablets as my iron level was low ( I wasn't anemic ) but verging on ?
I am feeling even worse now I am a wk into the tablets , I went back , I was then tested for coeliac disease and referred to see a gastric specialist . I was also asked if I'd like anything as it sounds like I have the symptoms of stress and anxiety ? I said no as I didn't feel that these symptoms were related to that ? 🙈, the tight chest and breathlessness are back and sore muscles and pins and needles , & sheer tiredness .
But I really feel I need more b12 more regularly and that will make me feel better ?
Why do doctors not listen to to your symptoms and why are they not keen on giving the b12 injection more regularly ?
I feel like it's a constant battle . Any advice welcome please and thanks X
