    Re: Anxiety associated with severe anemia?


    I've suffered from panic disorder for years! I've been on medication for it for years but it's not really helping. The last few months have been the worst I've ever been.
    I went to see the doctor and he just put it all down to anxiety and hyperventilating and didn't seem interested in what I had to say.
    So I saw another doctor who decided to do some blood tests.
    The test results came back a few days ago and I've been diagnosed with B12 and folic acid deficiency.
    I just thought the panic attacks were caused by a psychological disorder that I'd have to live with for the rest of my life but it wasn't until I started reading up about B12 anemia that I realised it's probably all due to the anemia.
    I haven't started the B12 injections yet because the doctors want to do more blood tests first.
    i'm hoping that once I start having the injections it will clear up all the symptoms associated with the anemia and hopefully the panic attacks will settle down.
