Hello all. I was diagnosed with pernicious anemia last July and am grateful that I have a sympathetic gp who is presently prescribing me 3 weekly injections of b12 as less frequent jabs weren't working for me. I'm also taking folic acid daily as this level keeps falling. my symptoms of the PA are seeming better, less confusion, sore tongue, dizziness etc. However, I have a worrying development of stiff swollen knuckles on both hands and painful wrists. I have made an appointment with my gp for next week by wondered if anybody knows about links between PA and rheumatoid arthritis. I must say that this is really scaring me, as my hands are really painful and not being able to use them properly has happened really quickly.
Any advice would be welcome. Thanks.
