I have been dealing with health issues for over 3 years. Tons of tests and all doctors could find nothing wrong. My sypmtoms were/are heart palpations, rapid heart rate, tired(very), cold(very), nausea, body shakes, dizziness, lightheaded, constipation, bloated, the list goes on and on
Finally I was diagnosed with overgrowth of bacteria in stomach about 3 months ago. The doctor believes I have had the overgrowth for at least 4 years and it may have been the reason for allot of my symptoms. I was put on Ciprofloxin, a two week does which didn't work so I ened up being on it for 6 weeks. The symptoms got so much better but I guess it didn't take care of all the bacteria so now I am taking Xifaxan. I have only been on that for 3 days. Hopefully this will take care of it.
I had read a bit about the overgrowth of bacteria and saw that it can cause b12 dificiency and when I look at the sypmtoms of overgrowth of bacteria and b12 dificiency I have them all. When I brought up the b12 to my GP she said "no - all of your regular blood tests came back fine" when I saw my GI doctor last week he decided to test my B12 while I was there and that came back with in the normal guidelines - 240
I tied to ask one of the nurses if it could have been lower before I started the meds for the bacteria. My feeling is it may have been and now that the bacteria is being treated it is not fighting for my B12?? I don't really know but I really feel B12 was a big part of my health these past 3 years
