I was diagnosed b12 deficient around four years ago. Most of my symptoms ceased very quickly once my doctor put me on the 12 week injection cycle but one symptom has continued.
Absence seizures followed by auditory hallucinations!
My doctor refuses to accept that these events are b12 related and whenever I have sought specialist help the conversation has gone down the psychosis route - I must be suffering from stress or mental illness.
The article above explains in great detail how doctors often cause the b12 deficiency by proscribing drugs which, over time, cause it then diagnose all manner of diseases which they attribute to other causes.
Altzeimers and dementia generally are often diagnosed as a product of ageing yet b12 deficiency is rife in post 60 year olds and, as the article explains (and many others) is caused by doctor proscribed medication - ppl’s such as omaprezole which I was prescribed on six monthly recurring prescriptions and took for over 6 years even though I am a vegetarian with fairly low levels of b12 foods in my diet.
I hope you can access the article and that you find it informative and helpful (sorry about all the adverts!).
I would be grateful for your comments as I suffer all alone with my illness as every medical practitioner I speak to denies that my symptoms are b12 related which makes them medical ignoramuses (they can’t know everything but they are at root supposed to be scientists with inquiring minds) and as they have wanted to take me down the mental illness route I have elected to no longer tell them about my symptoms.
