Hi, I am trying to find more about my illness and why I cannot absorb both vitamins B12 and Folate. I went to my doctor telling him that I felt exhausted 24/7, headachy, confused and achy sometimes with a sore throat and a lot of weakness. I could sleep for more hours in the day than I'm awake and still want to sleep after being awake for half an hour. My blood tests came back showing that I have severely low levels of both B12 and Folate. There are two doctors at the practice that have 45 years experience between them and they've both told me that they've never seen this in a 28 year old girl. I have to have B12 injections 3 times a week for 2 weeks and after the first week introduce Folate. The doctor said I'll feel much better after my third injection but we can't work out why I can't absorb both vitamins. Tests showed that I wasn't anaemic nor was I suffering from coeliac disease. He cannot work out why I am deficient in both. I can't remember my Folate level but I remember my B12 level sitting at 120 which he said was low. I'm looking forward to feeling better but I want to know if anyone out there has heard of this problem before and what caused their deficiency? I eat well and try to exercise when I'm not so tired and don't smoke or drink a lot of alcohol. I hope someone has heard of this before!
