I have lived in fear of this! I suffered for 10 years with stomach trouble, and 3 years before diagnosis with all the usual symptoms PA sufferers have from fatigue, breathlessness, pins and needles ,palpitations, muscle aches, hair loss and memory loss and mental fog.I had to ask for a B12 test and my level at diagnosis was 75 ! Since August 2012 I have had injections, first the loading dose , then 3 monthly , - couldn't cope so got them 2 monthly - couldn't cope so went to 6 weekly then finally monthly. For 11 months I have been doing fine and coping just beginning to feel human again and have enthusiasm and energy. Now a doctor in the surgery reviewed my medication while my own GP was away and I am informed I am to go back on 3 monthly jabs. I feel so anxious and tired and the thought of having to do battle all over again and it fills me with dread. I have been fine so why not leave the regime as it is. I am nearly 61 but very physically active and also care for elderly relatives . I will not cope on a reduced level.
Help help please.
