Hi, I have tested positive for intrinsic factor, have a family history of PA, my mum, sister and daughter all have injections but I am not allowed! My level is 300...it has been 300 for about 20 years, it went down to 90 when I was pregnant 24 yrs ago and I was still refused injections. I was ill after I had my daughter and would not wish that inn anyone. My daughter gave birth 2 weeks ago, her B12 level went down to 92 ( i told her to tell them of family history) she has had loading injections and has been told she has PA and will be on injections for life so i am very glad of that. However I am still being refused even though i have symptoms (extreme tiredness, legs and arms hurt, extreme thinning hair) I am very upset as i feel that my life would have been a lot better if i had been allowed injections, I have 4 children and have struggled for years with symptoms., I will be going to my GP tomorrow and wonder if anyone could give me advice on what to say? Thank you
