Testing For B12 Deficiency

Recommended Posts

Guest Kathy Ann

My unexplained feeling of breathlessness and smothering is getting worse. Doctor says heart is fine. I also have numbness and tingling in my extremities. I just looked on my big recent blood test. I don't see B12 anywhere. Could it be listed by some other name or determined by some other way? Can't imagine the doctor not including B12 on the test. Would like to hear from someone who knows how to read blood tests. Thanks.

How would I know if breathlessness and tingling is only hyperventilation? Anybody know what can be done about spontaneous hyperventilation if it is? Thanks.

Kathy Ann, if you've been tested for B12, it says 'Vitamin B12'. There is no other way it's put. So, apparently you haven't been tested for it. Go back and ask specifically to be tested for B12.

What other things were you tested for, and what were your results?

Your symptoms could be the result of generally low B vitamin status (I think it was deficiency in B6 that could cause those symptoms, but I'm not sure). Make sure you take a high potency 100mg B complex regularly.
