B12 And Or Foliate Deficiency
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

Just wondering how many of you have been diagnosed with either or both ..... and was it before or after your fibro diagnosis?

Also, any of you who haven't been tested .... are you curious to whether you have it and will you consider asking your doctor for a test?

Huggs everyone :)

I was having horrible calf and shin area cramping. It would keep me up at night. I was tested aggressively for MS.The dr officially diagnosed me with "chronic severe fibro" but no MS .What he did find was that I had a bad B-12 deficiency so I have been taking it plus Vit D and magnesium for over a year. My leg cramps stopped the second day of taking the B12.

I am sorry for your pain. As a thought, are you good at pacing yourself? Nutrition? Gentle exercise? You probably know the drill. Those are other big things that I am still learning to do that helps my pain levels a little. There are a Lot of wonderful natural suggestions on here. Keep reading and asking. Sometimes there just isn't another answer and meds may have to be the answer for awhile. I hope you find something soon that works for you hon

If you needed a blood transfusion then your body is not absorbing iron & B12 correctly. I am a nurse & since you needed a blood transfusion your doctor is legally responsible for finding out why & that means all testing for all vitamin deficientcies.

I take vitamin d everyday and about every 3 months a prescribed amount of D . My DR say's I do not absorb the D or the b12 so I will always need supplements and be checked often.
