I suddenly started getting lots of symptoms last December:
Numbness and tingling on whole left side
Muscle stiffness and weakness in left arm and leg
Loss of balance
Shortness of breath
Sensitivity to heat
Sensitivity to noise
I have got some family history as my Grandad had PA.
Had various blood tests which confirmed low b12 - 159 ng/l (191-663).
Test for PA antibodies was negative.
I then had 6 loading injections in January and am now on 3 monthly injections.
All the symptons above pretty much cleared up within a month or two of starting with the injections much to my relief.
However I have now got numbness, tingling, stiffness and weakness just in my right hand and it seems to be getting slowly worse.
I am right handed so this is causing difficulty with various things such as writing, carrying hot drinks etc.
I am confused by this development. Why have the neuropathic symptoms moved from my whole left side to just my right hand?
I have tried both patches and oral spray to keep my b12 levels up between injections but they do not seem to be helping with my right hand.
I am thinking of trying a multivit as well but I am not sure what to go for.
Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Does anyone have any suggestions of what else to try?
Any advice would be gratefully received.
