So in nov I had bloods done because I have not been feeling well and my B12 came back at 155. My boss who is a nurse told me I should look into that because it could be causing some of my symptoms. I brought it up with one doctor and she said it wasn't very low at to it more mussels and fortified cereals, so I went to another doc who said it was marginally low so to take a folic acid and b12 supplement.
I started to look online and found this group. So armed with all the information I found out here and since I had a neuro appointment anyway I asked her and she said it wasn't very low but because I have pins & needles to have b12 shots.
I go to my GP today and she says that the neuro hasn't written anything about b12 shots in the notes that she has written a prescription for cianocobalamin + folic acid tablets and to proceed and she (my GP) thinks is necessary. So my GP has said that is all she considers I need unless I have absortion problems which they will test in my next bloods, who knows when...
I left crying and don't know what to do. Because I have a history of anxiety I'm never taken seriously and all my symptoms are always put down to that.
Any advice pls?
