Can't Get Doctors to Believe that I Have Vitamin B12 Deficiency
It seems it has become the norm. for surgery doctors to disbelieve you have the symptoms of pernicious anaemia or B12 deficiency . In order to help myself I have been taking B12 Methylcobalamin oral spray which has made a difference to my health.
I imagine if I do get an appointment eventually to test for these problems it will be an issue to register these problems that exist. I have had a problem with anaemia all my life - I also have a under active thyroid condition and have previously had a quadruple bypass 4 years ago plus in November 2014 had 2 heart attacks - second one because first stent was too weak.
I am 76 and have experienced many of the symptoms listed when reading again & again about these matters which make a lot of sense to me.
Going back to 2013 I experienced a bad bout of dizziness when getting out of bed one morning which one of the surgery doctors was adamant it was a bout of vertigo - but left me with many side effects for well over a week. I then discovered quite a lot about peripheral neuropathy after that experience. I am strong willed & I continue to do the best I can to help myself but am anxious to understand if I could find the answers.
I would be grateful for your advice because I hate the thought of these doctors in the surgery not taking me seriously once again. I have come across so many in similar situations when they are not taken seriously.
I would appreciate your help if you have the time please. Recently had a problem with helicobacter pylori which I dealt with myself.
