Several years ago I began to experience flashing lights in the periphery of both eyes. Due to the fact that I hit my head in a car accident I was referred to a retina specialist to make sure my retinas weren't detaching as a result of the impact. She said my retinas were perfectly healthy and there was no worry. Fast forward 2 years, I was diagnosed with SASCD due to PA. I've been doing fairly well; but in the last few weeks, the flashing has gotten worse and my vision has gotten worse as well.
2 months ago, I moved myself from weekly injections to sublinguals. My recent bloodwork showed a drop from my b12 at 2000 (loading doses) to 464. I've read about PA affecting the eyes, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same or similar symptoms. My hematologist is on vacation this week so I spoke to his nurse who made me feel like I was crazy for asking to go back on injections. My serum b12 is in the normal range, but who knows how much active b12 is really being absorbed by my body.
I'm really irritated for being made to feel like I am an annoyance, and she was actually angry at me for "challenging" her with questions. Can anyone provide any feedback on these issues with my eyes so I can pass these experiences along when I speak to my MD next week?
Thanks to all!!
