I found out yesterday I have B12 and Vitamin D deficiencies. For a few months now, I have just been dragging. I haven't really complained about it, just figured it was something I signed up for as a working mom. I've been tossing around going to the dr, but kept putting it off. Finally, when I woke up the Tues morning after Labor Day and felt as tired as I did before the 3 day weekend even started, I decided to make an appt. The main issue, other than complete exhaustion is that I've had alot of trouble concentrating, making connections, and just generally having this feeling of "foggy brain." If someone were to ask me what happened in the meeting yesterday, I couldn't answer immediately. I'd have to stop and think of what day it is today, what that would make yesterday, and then work my way mentally through the day to get to the meeting. I feel like it's starting to affect my job a bit, and that's not good.
So, I made an appt with a new dr. I hate my old PCP, and my gyno wouldn't do the b/w for me. He called last night to say I have both Vit D and B12 deficiencies. I'm going to start taking an IM injection for the B12 and a pill for the Vit D. He was surprised that both were low, especially the Vit D, since it's summer time. I think he said I'll take 3 injections once a week and then get tested again.
So, that's my latest story. Oh, and the bigger news that I will post about later (once I have more to report) is that I made the call to Dr. K to get my FET consult scheduled. Sandy (secretary) and I are in conversations to figure out what is going to work schedule-wise. I didn't realize that I need to have a period before getting my SHG and TET done again. BUT, she is checking with Dr K to see if that is absolutely necessary.
Now, two of my favorite new pics:)
