Hey everyone.. Not sure if I'm posting this in the right spot, but here goes. I am suspicious that I may have a b12 deficiency based on symptoms I have. I know that if it's really low I need injections, but I started taking oral supplements because I felt I needed to try something so I could manage everyday. Well the supplements made me feel a little better (more energy that wore off fairly quick), but I have been experiencing terrible head symptoms and headaches, which seems to have started around the same time I started taking the b12. I haven't taken them for a few days, but my head is still really bothering me. Obviously, my question is do the supplements cause terrible headaches? I forgot to mention already that I am 26 and have been a vegetarian since around age 12 or 13. I have rarely taken supplements over the years (except for my two pregnancies) and eat very little dairy and no eggs. I know I need to have my levels checked, but the doctor I will be seeing is booked for a few weeks.
Looks like I got a little off track. So does anyone know if the b12 would cause my terrible headaches and pressure, etc.?? I'd love some insight. Thanks :)
