In 2014, I started to suffer from severe night sweats. It was so bad that I had to get up regularly through the night to dry my body and bed. I quite often slept wrapped up in a towel. I also suffered the feeling of my legs being wet all the time and like water was running down them, but when I touched them, they were bone dry...

...I asked to see the results on the screen, and highlighted, there in RED, was my low b12 levels. Normal scale for my area is 200-900, mine were 180. She said, and I quote, “they are not that low, we’ll test again in 3 months. You’re too young to be put on injections for life, and too young to have pernicious anaemia.”
