Hi, I’m Jodie I’m 24 and I’ve recenetly been diagnosed with B12 deficiency. (Sounds like I’m at an AA meeting!)
It’s all still very new to me and I’m still learning a lot about the condition.
I’ve had my six injections and I’m getting my first ‘3 month’ one tomorrow. The past week I have been feeling extremely tired again and my legs have began to itch (which was also a symptom for me before I knew I had B12 deficiency) I understand that it’s normal to be able to tell when the next injection is due?
Also, when the doctor diagnosed me she mentioned the words ‘pernicious anemia’ but I can’t actually remember her saying if I had that or just B12 deficiency but she believes my body does not absorb the vitamin? (Brain fog!)
I’d really love to hear people’s stories and experiences of living with B12 deficiency and any advice would be greatly appreciated!
