I was recently diagnosed with b12 deficiency (201 pg/ml). I've also started going to the gym a lot and I've lost 12 pounds in the past three weeks. Today I did my normal 50 minute gym routine and right after I got horribly sick. I'm taking Zofran for nausea - which gives me headaches - but I'm trying to figure out if I'm hitting the gym too hard while I'm being treated for the b12 deficiency. Is a lot of cardio and some strength training too much?

I have a b12 deficiency and have recently been diagnosed with gastritis. Ive had no vomiting and one if two loose bowel moments. Ive also started itching all over. Are the b12 deficiency and gastritis related? (Ive had no official diagnosis for the b12 deficiency other than latent coeliacs?)

Hi for several years i have suffered with palpitations, they seem to come and go, i can have a few then nothing for a few months and episodes of a weird lightheaded feeling and after i feel drained and Five months ago i was diagnosed with vitb12 deficiency and had a course of treatment, i recently have been getting these episodes again. Are these symptoms linked to my b12 levels? Are they likely to be low again only after 5 months ago having injections. Could anything else be the cause?

Hi - I had a blood test following a bout of sinusitis 4 years ago which found that my esr was 100+ and has remained so ever since (even following a course of steroids, the esr remained high). I feel awful, with symptoms of lethargy, fatigue, no energy - almost like symptoms for chronic fatigue syndrome, but I know that a high esr and cfs are not associated as the esr is usually very low with cfs. I was also diagnosed 2 years ago with chronic renal failure, stage 3 following a routine blood test. I have undergone numerous investigations (such as scans, USS, etc) but the medical staff can still not find the cause for the high esr. Other medical problems I have are: hypertension (controlled on medication), hypothyroidism (controlled on medication), recently diagnosed with low vitamin b12 and have just completed a course of injections for this. Any ideas what may be the cause of this high esr or any suggestions? Thanks you.
