I have been feeling very unwell for a few years now and backwards and forwards to the docs never helps, docs think its all in my head but when I cant walk more than 10 metres and feel happy and certainly not anxious I find it very hard to believe there is nothing wrong...
Anyway the only thing that ever shows up as abnormal is high b12 and also folate... doctor says it must be supplements and when I say I don't take supplements he then says it must be my good diet and then I tell him I have been veggie for over 20 years and cant cook well as I have to energy to cook! The doc then tells me to try beta blockers.......... Arghhhhh
I have all the symptoms of a b12 deficiency so is it possible to have a deficiency and high blood levels if the b12 in my blood is not active?
I would like to get a blood test to check the active b12 in my blood.... Would this help in my situation? Any other tests that may help?
I am worried also because I have read the horrible things that high b12 can indicate but my doctor says I am fine........
I am so frustrated with feeling so bad... These are some of my symptoms (well what I can remember off hand as memory is also a big problem!)
Tingling in feet
Lack of energy and any physical activity is debilitating
Headaches (pains in back of head).....
Ringing in ears
Mt TSH is slowly rising (is now 3.16) but my doctor says I will never have a thyroid problem as antibodies and T3 and T4 levels are normal.....
Thanks for reading xxx
Is the active b12 test available on NHS?
