I am a 31 year old mother of 3. Long story short, I gave birth on 11/28/09 and have been sick ever since. I was diagnosed with Peripartum Cardiomyopathy on 01/15/10 with an ejection fraction of 45%. I am on Coreg and Lisinopril. I have been progressively getting worse, not better. My Cardiologist say it is not heart related. After months of going from doc to doc, I finally had complete blood work done with new Internist. He sent me the labs in the mail saying all was normal. After reviewing I saw that my Vitamin B-12 is 207, reference range 211-946. I called the office to ask about this, he stated I could take an oral supplement. I did for 2 weeks and started to feel worse, fatigue, muscle weakness, tingling hands and feet, numb around lips, burning sensation in body, ringing ear, shortness of breath, always wanting to lay down. As the mother of 3 young kids I need to get out of bed, and I am loosing my family support. HELP!!! I called again and they gave me a b-12 injection yesterday and was sent on my way. What should I do?? Please help, I am desperate to get well.
