Last week I was posting in the Thyroid section of this site – my GP reduced my thryroxine, I started to feel unwell, so I had a blood test. The test results came back showing my thyroid levels are fine. But apparently the B12 result arrived back at the surgery a few days after the other results (?) and it showed I’m low in Vitamin B12.
Doctor has prescribed B12 tablets, told me to see how I go, and if I don’t feel better by the end of Jan, to come back, have another blood test, and she may consider B12 injections. Fair enough – a problem has been identified and I’m being treated.
My symptoms are weird (although quite typical according to Google) fatigue, feeling faint and a bit dizzy. My ears are also ringing slightly. I was beginning to think I’d got flu.
I’ve only been taking supplments for 24 hours, so I’m not expecting to be doing cartwheels just yet, but can I expect to be feeling a bit better by Christmas? Feeling faint and dizzy is making it hard to go about my usual routine, although I’ve been prescribed Stemetil, and that’s helping a lot.
