MCV is 108
MCV count is 108. Looking at my past blood counts it has always been in the normal range (80-90). I have surfacing veins everywhere (chest, arms, legs, hands, feet, and now they're under my eye, I can see them and now you can see where they're starting from, my hairline). Other symptoms are my hair is thinning, my bowels are loose, I wake up from 3 on, several times to urinate, my left hand tingles and arm is a little numb. It started in my trapezius, so I was thinking that I had pinched a nerve. But it is not going away. I've had these symptoms for almost 4 months. I started taking B12 (1000mg) and a B complex. The B12 is chewable. And now I realize that the best way for a B12 is through the mucous membrane so I've ordered a tincture that also includes folate. I'm hoping this will help me with my symptoms, I'm wondering if this is enough B12 since I do have the symptoms of some sort of a vitamin deficiency. I've been to a vein doctor and an endocrine doctor and 2an pc doctor s for the second one told me that it was stress related, and the urinating several times nightly, she said that was a bladder control issue. I'm so infuriated (and angry) with the doctors I've had seen.
They have such an opportunity to use all of what western medicine has laid at their fingertips, and it seems they're not using that. And I'm trying to solve my own symptoms, it seems that I've been left in the cold. I'm grasping at straws here. I'm probably as learned (or maybe moreso) than these doctors I've been seeing. Hoping this helps someone else. Anyone want to chime in in the dosage question. Is it enough to help me? I know B vitamins are water soluble, so I'm not that much in danger of it being too much. But I do not want to take to much. I want to take enough to reach my symptoms.
