Vitamin B12 Def

I have been having alot of health problems for the past 2 years.  I have Celiac and Addisons Disease. Two years ago, I started having tingling and numbing sensation in my hands and feet. My doctor said it was probably a pinched nerve. About six months later I still had the tingling sensation but now having muscle spasms all over my body. Sometimes my eye would twitch for 2 days straight. My doctor check my b12 level and said it was slighty low, but not low enough to have symptoms so he sent me to a neurologist. They did several test for als and ms. All were negative. He sent me back to my doctor because I has nothing neurologically wrong with me. By this time, my symptoms have gotten worse. Besides the tingling and muscle spasms, I have vision problems, extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, gastritis, and red swollen tongue. I can deal with most of this, but my tongue I cant. It is always sore. My papilla fall off leaving big swollen red sores. I can barely taste anything. Eating is extremely painful. I have terrible stomach pain everyday. My doctor put me on nexium and my mouth is even more sore. I almost faint when I stand up. I just feel like I am slowly dying and no one will help me.  My B12 level was check again.  It was in normal range. But I am deficient in Folic Acid and Vit D. I am now taking supplememts for that, but I dont feel any better. Could I be deficient in Vit B12 and still have a normal blood test? What else can I do?

The red postules on your tongue and mouth could be thrush you should have that checked. Have some test run on your liver just to make sure things are fine there. Do research on symptoms of Liver disorders.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
With folic acid deficiency, it is possible for iron and Vit B12 deficiency to co-exist. Hence if B12 is normal, test for iron. Also once you start Vti D and folic acid supplements it will be sometime before you really feel normal again. You can take Vit B12 supplements or a multivitamin B12 supplement and see.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
