So I am b12 deficient and I've been counting down the days to my first 3 monthly b12 jab after loading doses in November had it 2 weeks ago and although things have improved I am still tired and getting itchy skin and twinges in my wrists and ankles are coming back too.
Last time I spoke to my gp she said if I didn't get better with 3 monthly shots then it wasn't b12 causing the symptoms.
Someone on the pas forum queried my thyroid function on another post i made and i knew this had been tested ok - I have gone back through all my blood tests and found in Jan last year tsh of 2.9 range (0.3 - 5.5).
I was told this was ok and back then never thought to question this along with my 187 b12! However I have researched a bit now and understand that anything above2.5 is considered the new limit - is this worth pursuing or am I just looking for things to be wrong starting to feel like a total hyperchondriac but just want to feel normal again!
Main symptoms are tiredness itchy skin brain fog and weight gain ( over a stone in a year with same diet and exercise or more accurate struggle to exercise because I'm so tired all the time!)
Thanks for taking the time to read
