My WBC is low but percentages of individual components are normal. Last blood test I can remember which was about 12-14 years ago - my WBC was low so maybe I'm just one of those people with a low count. I rarely get sick but don't feel energetic at all and tire out easily. I guess my question is could I have a B12 deficiency? I have had the following symptoms:

- Cannot gain weight - has been like this for the past 12 years but never was
like this before.
- Dizzy spells for the past year.
- Moodiness (big time!)
- No energy
- Lack of appetite (this is not constant but off and on for the past few months)
- Gastrointestinal Issues (Burp a lot for no real reason that I can figure)
- Weakness in legs (especially when I walk up stairs)
- Out of breath easily even though I work out fairly regularly and am not overweight.
- Rapid heart rate
- Sleep 8-10 hours a night and still have a hard time waking in the morning. Always feel like I haven't gotten a good nights sleep.

There are probably more but those are the most prominent issues I am having.
I am just getting really frustrated as the Dr I've been going to for the last year seems to think I am just fine and doesn't take any thing I say very serious. I have had an Ultrasound on my heart - everything looked fine. EKG was fine. Thyroid test was normal. Looking at my results is there any other tests I should ask for? I am searching for a new Dr. who may be a little more involved.

Thanks for any help you can give.
