Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
I'm sorry to hear about this
This may be due to macrocytosis
If you have vitamin B12 deficiency then it may cause nerve irritation, and lead to the itchy feeling you have
I would advise you to ask your doctor to check your vitamin B12 level
The sensitivity of my skin has also changed. It feels almost like it is not sensitive enough in order to feel the cold or the heat as much as before. Can this also be due to macrocytosis?
Yes, it is likely due to macrocytosis
At the moment I do take a lot of vitamins: B complex, centrum, slow mag, omega 3, calcium. I started also feeling tired
and I started taking iron as well
Okay, you still ned the test to check
what else can I do
3 months ago completely stoped smoking and drinking
You can keep taking your vitamins and have a blood test to check your vitamin b12
is the tiredness related to macrocytosis as well?
never felt tired in my whole life
It possibly is as well
ok Dr Brim!
very much for your help
You're quite welcome
