Are you supplimenting B12? and could I ask how you are feeling?
Hi Moggie. No, I'm not supplementing B12. Have not been feeling well for the last 6 months really. I lost my dad in July last year. I've had rashes with a temperature; catching anything going; aching like mad - legs (shins especially); right elbow, forearm and wrist; left shoulder and top of arm into neck too. Not sleeping too well and having lots of nightmares and waking feeling groggy and nauseous. Saw a specialist via NHS in the new year and I found out I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis - thought for the last 6 years I was just hypthyroid!
