I was diagnosed with b12 deficiency in May, had loading dose and have kept up with my 12 weekly injections. However, I am still experiencing pain mainly in hands but also in legs, back, feet, head, around my eyes etc. extreme fatigue. I have had treatment for carpal tunnel (injections into wrists) but they have been unsuccessful.
My GP have now done blood tests to check my thyroid, vit. D, ferratin and folates. Unfortunately I have no idea how to read the results when they come through and want to know, if I'm told everything's clear, how close to borderline I am or if they've carried out the right tests.
I'm not even sure if there are standard units etc. in the UK or if different labs report results differently.
I know that there is something wrong, my fatigue is ridiculous, I rarely leave the house other than to go to work and the lethargy makes me not even want to straighten my hair as my arms ache too much.
Hopefully someone who has been down this route too will be able to help.
Thanks in advance
