My husband has been really ill for a long time now. 2 months ago his eyesight went incredibly blurry (maculor not peripheral) it has remained that way and he has had no break from it. He is really achey and can do very little before having to sit down. He has constant fluey symptoms and generally unwell. We were initially contacting the gp because of his eyesight at which point we were told "I dont deal with eyes, its not my problem" he initially thought there was a possibility of conjunctivitis but wasnt convinced and gave him drops to cover himself. Full course done and no improvement, contacted him and he said he didnt know and basically wouldnt deal with it anymore. We requested another doctor and he had no clue but to be safe he done bloods. The district nurse came out (hes agoraphobic) done bloods and came back saying both b12 and iron levels were low. How low I dont know and that within a week or so he would have meds as he wasnt keen on injections. He would have them if neccessary but gp said tablets would be ok. He doesnt seem to want to know how or why this happened and when asked if the vision was related he said I have no idea but this needed treating. In the mean time we got an optician out and they said they can see nothing overly wrong with his eyes, he had a small haemoridge but that was nothing and would be referred. They were of the opinion that it was unrelated. He also takes no medication and is only 26.So I suppose my question really is has anyone else had problems with their eyesight as a result of a b12 deficiency? Is this a long term thing? I have noticed personality changes so will that get better? Basically can anyone help as we both feel so trapped and alone and the gp is of no real help. Sorry if I have blabbered on.
I think you need to clarify with your doctor whats going on.

He will need the tablets for longer than "till the symptoms settle down" - he needs to rebuild his bodys stores of iron and vitamins, and you also need to get to the bottom of why he is deficient in the first.

You seem to have a very poor relatinship with your doctor - have you considered seeing someone else, or asking for a second oppinion?
