Hi, I was diagnosed with a folate deficiency 2 months ago so have been taking tablets for that. When I had the blood test that diagnosed it, I had a B12 level of 167.
I have recently for the past few months been having pins and needles a lot, slight numbness in my toes, tiredness, brain fog like being unable to concentrate at work, forgetting things etc.
I had another blood test at my request, my B12 level was 221 which the doctor said is normal. But I had a Vitamin D deficiency which they said is probably the causeof my symptoms.
To me though, the symptoms of a vit D deficiency don't seem the same? Do they usually include pins and needles and neuroligical problems? I thought it was just muscle weakness and bone pain mostly.
Is it worth me asking the GP to consider a trial of B12 medication? Or would you say its high enough that it's likely not the cause of my symptoms? The range on the test was 145-910 btw.
Thanks in advance
