I recently got diagnosed with a B12 deficiency. I am having neurological symptoms of neuropathy, vision fuzziness, brain fog, fatigue, and elevated anxiety and depression.
Folate level is normal and iron is borderline low. Doc prescribed an iron supplement and 6 loading doses. One shot every other day for 2 weeks. Today will be the 3rd of the loading doses. I feel better right after the loading dose but have generally been feeling terrible. I guess I just need some support and for someone to tell me that it's gonna be ok. I am so scared that these neurological symptoms will be permanent and the anxiety is taking over my life.
I literally could not stop crying yesterday. Likely, my deficiency is from being on metformin and birth control long term. I have been anemic before but have always taken a multi vitamin and iron supplements sporadically. Any tips or support would be appreciated, thanks much!
