I have been diagnosed with B12 Anemia. I have been prescribed both b12 and iron. However, the b12 has created the following symptoms: exhaustion, suicidal tendencies, extreme anxiousness, severe pain in my arms & legs, weakness, lightheadedness, extreme shortness of breath, very poor balance/coordination, constant ringing in my ears, severe fatigue, and migraine headaches.
Without taking the b12, I have these same symptoms; only about 90% less. I went to get additional help at my college's health clinic & found out the b12 was causing all of these things.
Are there other treatments of b12 defiency besides taking the b12 tablets and the shots? As I was told if I took the shots after all the problems I had with the tablets, these symptoms could get much worse. I certainly do not want that! As you can imagine. As I was so depressed while taking the b12 that I felt like cutting my wrists. I also was so anxious that I was BARELY able to go to class.
Does anyone out there know of other options? I obviously am increasing b12 in my diet. What else can I do? THANX!!
