Have you had your B12 checked? Be sure to find out the actual number.

If it is in the range of 200 - 400 pg/mL then you are deficient and need treatment even though the doctor may tell you that it is normal. If it is in this range you should first get MMA (methylmalonic acid) and Hcy (homocysteine) tested because if EITHER of these are high, it confirms a B12 deficiency. Would also be a good idea to get tested for pernicious anemia then too.

Do not start B12 injections until those tests are done because MMA and Hcy levels will start dropping after getting the shots.
