Further to my previous post (thanks again for the replies), can anyone tell me what the most common symptoms of low B12, D, folate, ferritin and iron? (459, 39.9, 6.9, 102 and 12.5 - in that order)
Following the comments I've started supplementing (yesterday) with D3 (25 mcg) and B (B-100 complex, containing Bs 1, 2, 6 & 12, plus folic acid and others) tablets from Holland & Barrett.
I haven't seen the doctor yet (appointment's next week), but I seem to recall seeing something on here previously, saying aching muscles and tendons can be caused by low D. Is there anything else I should be looking out for? My main problem (as you may have guessed) is my Achilles tendons aching, though for years I could pull a muscle just sauntering along the street when in no particular rush.
It's only been a day since I started taking the tablets so no change yet, though I have noticed my pee is bright yellow! It looks like I'm dehydrated, though I know I'm not. Presumably this is the B-100 complex, as they have a yellow tint to them. Is this the tablets? Is this a sign of overdose (I only took one)? Is this just because I've started taking them and they are helping my body clear out all the rubbish that's been building up for years and is a temporary thing?
Any comments or suggestions greatly received.
