My vitamin D test came back at 13 and vitamin B12 180 (iron and calcium were normal). I took sublingual vit. b12 and 6000 vit D for a month - I was retested and was on the very low end of normal for both vitamin D and B12. My doctor gave me a B12 shot and told me to continue the taking the B12 & Vitamin D supplements. It is has been two months and I still do not feel 100%.
When I started taking the supplements, I started feeling a little better. It has been two months and now seems as if some of the symptoms have returned. Specifically: the tingling sensation, fatigue and bruising.
I am discouraged and not sure what I should do? My doctors have not been helpful thorough out this "process" - I will not get into details but it took over four years to finally discover I had vitamin deficiencies. The doctor that finally diagnosed me really did not give me much information on what to expect in terms of recovery..... I prefer not to go back to the doctor if it can be avoided.
My doctor told me that my Mg levels were normal (2mg/dl)
Thank you so much for the advice. I was wondering if you have any advice on finding a doctor knowledgeable (and interested) in treating vitamin deficiencies. My luck with local doctors has been 1 for 7.
It took over three years to finally find a doctor that agreed to test me for for D and B12. (I researched causes of extreme fatigue and all the other symptoms I was experiencing at the time and requested the tests)
