Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
welcome to the chat
Thank you, i was wondering if you could help answer my question
did you have your thyroid checked?
yes my thyroid was fine, i had full blood count, liver, kidneys, hormones, B12 and Bone profile
okay, well low vitamin b12 can cause those symptoms
but did you have these before starting them the first time?
I did yes
I dont seem to feel any better on the tablets and have been taking them for 4 weeks
did you have a ct of the head or MRI?
No not had anything like that done
well, I think that would be the study to get done
You would have to have profoundly low vitamin b12 levels to be as symptomatic as you are
and it is really hard unless you have severe malnutrition
I think that you need to check out your brain and make sure THAT isn't causing your headaches and issues with balance
No i dont have sever malnutrition, what else could be causing my symptoms?
Sorry what other medical reasons could there be to make me feel like this?
well, thiamine deficiency, thyroid disease, MS,
low sodium levels
I would suggest repeating the labs, thyroid test, get tested for thiamine and vit b12 levels
and a MRI of the brain (if those things are normal)
Thank you, i will make an appointment with the doctor and suggest the bloods mentioned and MRI
you are welcome.
I hope that I provided you with excellent service :-)?
