I’m currently being investigated for Coeliac Disease.
The problems with my intestines have caused iron deficiency anaemia and folate anaemia.
I’ve been taking heavy doses of folate (35mg a week) for the last four months. It’s helped my folate deficiency but seems to have caused other problems.
I’ve been getting horrendous, painful tingling in my hands. It has spread to my feet and legs. I feel anaemic again - smothered, exhausted, weak, chest pains, barely able to move from bed. I’ve become forgetful. It’s like my brain isn’t working properly any more.
I’ve read that folate supplementation can mask or worsen a B12 deficiency. I started to take 5000ug of Solgar sublingual Methylcobalamin every day.
I’ve just had a finger-prick *active* B12 test from Medichecks and it’s at 300.
Does this mean that I’m not deficient? Or is the result affected by my supplements?
I’m terrified right now because I feel like I’m dying. Something is very, very wrong.
Can anyone please help?
