hi everyone
theses 2 b12 threads have been very helpful, a lot of good info shared here.

ive been ill for about 8 years now, the past year ive been going to the doctor to try and find out why ive felt so ill for so long... my symptoms are...

- Always really tired, i wake up after 10 hours sleep and still feel tired, weak and canít walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath, no energy or motivation to do anything, constant exhaustion.
- Sensitive to heat- if its a bit cold i feel really cold and my hands and feet go numb and purple, and if itís a bit hot i feel really hot and sweat lots.
- Digestive problems.. really noisy stomach growling all the time, inconsistent stools, bad bloating, horrible stomach pain, craving food and feeling hungry all the time (especially sugar and carbs), donít put on weight no matter how much i eat, get really faint and shakey if i donít eat for a couple of hours or sometimes just at random times, this is only relived by eating.
- Heavy and painful periods (eased a bit with the pill), breakouts of spots on face and scalp, excess hair, greasy skin
- chest pain/tightness
- Feeling thirsty all the time (despite drinking lots of water) and having a dry, mouth/dry sore lips but still needing to pass water quite a lot
- Rashes on upper arms
- poor posture/uncomfortable back
- severe sweating, muscle twitches/pulsations
- alcohol affects me alot... legs go funny after only a few sips of beer or wine
- Brain fog, feeling Ďout of ití, not being able to concentrate, forgetting things, vision going funny - a bit dark/patchy light/blurry - colours go darker
- heavy eyes, feel like theyíre trying to cry sometimes
- off balance/clumsyness - clip door frames a lot - busy places and flourecent lights make me dizzy and spaced
- Chronic post nasal drip (a cause has never been found), pressure in the head, tingling, , stiff neck, uncomfortable back, stiffness in lower back
- Lump in front of my right ear/top of jaw which is sometimes sore and glands under chin/top of neck get tender and sore, also had lumps in nose
- Severe anxiety and depression caused by having all of these problems, get nervous about stupid things/panic attacks , no confidence or self worth, social anxiety, difficulty talking to people, easily embarrassed for no reason/blushing Ė like i cant control myself.

now, my doctors tested me for all the basic things and they were all normal.
so shes diagnosed me with IBS and thinks that all my symtpoms are casued by anxiety, im sorry but this is rubbish. my anxiett didnt start unitll a couple of years after i started getting exhausted and the stomach problems began. theres no way anxiety can casue all of these problems.

she also thinks i may have ME, im wating to see a specialist.
i dont think this is right, im almost certain my problems are casued by b12. i had to make the nurse take a blood smaple for b12, becaseu the doctor said there was no need... my result...272.
now my doctor says this is fine, no treatment needed, its normal becasue the range is 140-900. but from what ive been reading here 272 is not normal and not a healthy level.

do people think that low b12 could be casuing me to feel this exhuasted and ill? i think i may have hidden b12 deficiency.. and want to get other peoples opinions before trying to force my doc to do more test...
