Hello I’m a new member, after joining a Facebook group for help and advice with my health issues, B12 def, folate Def and also under active thyriod. It worried me with the advice given. I didn’t understand most, I was given a so many names of vitd to take, constantly going on about cofactors which I don’t even know. I become over whelmed and now think will I ever be able to get better ? I’m scared to inject B12 myself everyday, not to mention I couldn’t afford it. Sorry to go on, a little of why I am here. Since 2003 I have had issues absorbing B12, I was given injections every 3 months and to my fault I never kept on top of them, I wasn’t aware then how important this played in my health. I’m now still feeling worse then ever, my recent bloods in December 2020 I have added a pic below. My gp started me on 5mg folic acid which I take daily, I also take B12 oral spray 1000 daily abs Vit D oral spray 3000 daily. My skin is so pale it’s like paper white, I can never tan not even a little, I have these red pin prick blood spots on my belly area abs chest, not loss but enough to notice, my feet are constant ice cold, I’ve gain a lot of weight, I feel sick most days, I’m constantly tired and have no energy. The aches in my legs are painful, my mouth always feels dry, my vision has got bad and I get terrible headaches. Also I now have severe panic attacks and anxiety which I don’t know why has generally nothing is going on in my life to cause it apart from my health. Every time a injection is due my gp now wants to check my levels before giving me it. Any complaints I have she says is due to having no thyroid and being under active. (Had thyroid removed 2018) however I explain to her I felt like this before that and constantly feel like it. All these problems have turned me into a crap mum to my 3 kids, I’m not able to do anything cause I have zero energy. I just want to feel better or be pointed in a direction of what I need to say and do when approaching my gp. I just want to know if I have PA ? Current meds I’m on now is:
Levo 175mg daily, folic acid 5mg daily, B12 injections 3months, B12 oral spray 1000 daily, Vit D oral spray 3000 daily, iron oral spray 1000 daily. I’ve been on these since last year. So sorry for long post, I’m not sure if I have ever had a instrit blood test, what would that appear has on bloods ? Any help and advice is so appreciated 😊 sorry I’m only able to upload one photo of blood results. So I add
Folate 1.8. (3.8 - 9999)
B12 serum 242 (197 - 771)
I may have other bloods if needed that I can give results for.
