Hi....your B12 is way toooooo low...you definitely need to have more B12.You can ask your dr.to do the MMA test,homocysteine test and folic acid test....they are standard tests when your B12 level is under 400(labs usually say 200-1100 in the US),but I would definitely push for those other tests or at least start taking B12 sub-lingual...you really need it.Plus you are already anemic so I can't see why your dr. didn't tell you you need B12...probably because if you're "in range" then they think you're okay,but that is Not True.A hematologist would be havng you get a B12 monthly shot 'til your level of B12 gets above 400....

I have low B12 and my dr. gives me a mothly shot...mine was DX as a hidden B12 deficiency when my B12 level was 279 and my MMA was sky-high...when your B12 is that low the other tests will help show your dr. if your deficient.Anyways you still need mor B12...your symptoms are from low B12 and probably from the low ferritin also.

Good luck...hope this helps you.....don't wait too long ,because low B12 can cause neurological damage.Take Care~Scout
