... Hi Scout, Thanks for your reply, and sorry for not providing more background—I was trying to keep it (relatively) short. Some background, then: A year ago, when my left foot started buzzing, I was constantly dizzy, I became nearsighted in my right eye, and a whole lot of other things happened, my B-12 level was at 367 pg/ml.

... Hi Steph, My Ferritin was only checked once, with my initial 367pg/ml B12, and it was 42 (range: 10-154 ng/mL). My Iron, Total was 178 (range: 40-175 mcg/dL).

... What kind of Dr. should I see? You should see a GI doctor to find a cause of the B-12 deficiency. Also a Hematologist would be in order IF you are not able to correct this issue or need to get a B-12 script. I would not mess around with PCP's at this point, you need someone that is well versed. A GI works with the gut and knows his/her business. What you should know:... (22 replies)
... Hi FLFlowerGirl, Thanks for your reply and words of encouragement.
