Vitamin B12 Levels

It sounds like you are Vitamin B12 deficient. It's hard to understand why your doctors would miss this when it's right there in black and white. It sounds like they are not managing your care very well. Please read my pages on:

Also, if you are all of a sudden breaking bones, that would be suspicious of Vitamin D deficiency, and you should be tested. If you are low in these nutrients, this should be a big red flag for malabsorption from Gluten Sensitivity as well. Any and all of this can make you tired too.
