I was wondering if anyone else has ever been diagnosed with B-12 deficiency? My pysch doc had me draw some more labs recently due to a new medication she put me on, one of the things she was looking at was my B-12 level. When she called me with the results most of my labs were all within normal ranges except for the B-12. She told me that my B-12 level was very low and I needed to get with my family doc to talk about treatment. I have to wait for a little while to get in so I decided to do some research online since I knew nothing about B-12 deficiency. I was amazed when I read that the symptoms for this is tiredness, decreased mental work capacity, decreased concentration, decreased memory, irritability, depression and sleep disturbances. BIPOLAR disorder in some hereditary types of B-12 deficiency is also a possibility. OMG it was like reading a laundry list of all my problems that I have expierenced and have not been able to really control under the meds I am on. One of the things that really hit home was that recently I have noticed a marked increase of decreased concentration and memory especially at work. I also had been recently within the last six months been diagnosed with BIPOLAR II so this is something else that kind of hit me. I talked to my nurse at my family doctor about this after reading it and gave her a copy to read. She is also a very good friend for the last eight years so she is fully aware of my medical and mental history, she was also amazed to see so many of the symptoms I have been dealing with listed there. I will see my doctor in about a week and we will have to decide what form of B-12 replacement is best for me, but I hope that with this addressed it will improve and eliminate some of these symptoms. I was wondering if anyone else has any expierence with this and what your opinion was to how you felt after getting treatment? I will include a website if anyone wants to read about this.
