Can someone please advise...tell me I'm not imagining this.
I have been diagnosed and treated for B12 / K deficiency about 4 years ago...nothing since. I have been diagnosed with macrocytosis 2 years ago...told it was found in those who abuse alcohol!!! For the record I dont and isnt it true that B12 /K deficinecy can cause this.?? After visiting the GP recently, I came out feeling worse....to be fair I didnt mention this history....but they do have this already....he told me I had a virus.
I am suffering regular nosebleeds, severe fatigue most of the time, my joints hurt and I have gained lots of weight. My hands tingle and my legs feel heavy and are extremely sensitive to the touch...painful in fact.
ANy ideas? NOt only do I feel unwell, but I little neglected by my GP
Please ------comments or advise

  • Sounds like you need to be retested for deficiencies... you have some symptoms which sound like B12 issues.. and maybe your K issue is back.

  • My primary care physician ordered a blood test. I have Enlarged Red Blood Cells so, he referred me to a Oncologist, who gave me a complete physical exam, & after reading the test results, he said,"Your red blood cells are large." He wouldn't tell me, when I asked, "what could mean?, & had a lab tech to come take three new small tubes of blood. Will see him in three weeks.
