Hello I was a normal healthy person up until I had my Son 3 yrs ago, my pregnancy was perfect i was really well didnt feel pregnant. (always have been a really healthy sporty person). The first signs was when i bent down changed his new born nappy it was hard to straighten back up this is still the case now but more severe i Also had strange sore pains inbetween my legs like a water infection without the infection and a painfull tummy weight wise? then a year later extreme tiredness i was falling asleep and leaving him unattended , this terrified me as i have no family local hubby at work all day. So I went to my local doctor who took swabs a smear ect all came back clear i kept going back to the doctor who said i have ibs then anxiety i got no-where, the doctor labeled me the worried well, after many appoints to the doctor she sent me for an ultrasound of my tummy and to see a gynocoligst who laaughed because i didnt want sex being a female at 28 ! I was mortified. I gave up after 2 years of getting no-where.

The tiredness got worse and back ache i started to feel like i have the flu in the mornings cant wake up and i look terrible i feel i could fall asleep whilst I walk. More recently the last 6months almost as if someone has hit me on the head (brain fog ) random episodes everyday that are hard to snap out of,I also go tothe wrong places on the wrong day at wrong times i rarely know what the correct day is automaticly and its hard to remenber what i did yesterday, my periods are heavy and clot menstural pain random throughout the month.

So I went to a new doctor out side my area with the (nhs) who listened and took blood 3 weeks later she asked if i was vegitarian. I am not I eat a very healthy diet of meat everyday with veg pasta or rice fish eggs cakes you name it I eat very well.

She has prescribed me 50mcg of cyanocobalamin 3x a day and one 5mg of folic acid per day all she said was am i depressed i anwsered No I no what depression is and she replyed that it is a symptom of my blood levels she said i wasnt very low and thats all. I got upset because i just asumed she was giving me vitiams and sending me on my way i have nother appointment in 6 weeks to check levels. this was one week ago the tablets have done nothing i may open my bowels alittle more but still have dioreah.

My main fear is the B12 is a symptom of something more severe like cancer i have felt so ill for such a long time and Severe anxiety is starting to kick in and send me crazy Im so desperate for help I dont know how long before i really lose it. Or how to connect with this doctor so she can listen and i not ruin the 5 mins I do get with the doctor by being so distressed i cry and dont comunicate what i nedd to.

If any one understands or can advise I will be truely gratefull please help x
