Hi my new GP has diagnosed me with PA but another GP at practice stated I didn't have as I have immature red blood cells. He also stated breathlessness was in no way linked to B12 problems. I have an injection every 8 weeks the benefits last approx. 13 days then symptoms kick in (been told only licensed for minimum 8 week inj) . A senior GP at my practice states no point topping up B12 and not to focus on injections only; this from a GP who stated I had nothing medically wrong with me to cause fatigue.
It has taken 8 years to get to this stage my concerns are that I have not had an endoscopy despite having ibs symptoms nor had my heart checked as enlarged heart/stroke is also a PA risk. I've taken Lansoprazole for 8 years and blame this. I have asked to be referred to a Haematologist as getting no where with GP my Haemaglobin, iron and vit D3 are all below normal. Really would like B12 injections fortnightly as they do improve my symptoms and would like to feel normal again. No one understands and I am made to feel that I'm just lazy.
