Hi, this is my first post. I have been feeling tired, fatigued, foggy brain, headaches, itchy skin, burning crawling sensation in palms so I got bloods checked from GP. First bloods done mid March and my serum ferritin was 1 and Haemoglobin was 8.0 I was put on iron supplements. I was given a colonoscopy, endoscopy which showed nothing wrong and clear of coeliac. I returned to GP of my own accord as I hadn't heard from them and asked for bloods to be redone. This time ferritin was 12, haemoglobin was 12.8 and got B12 checked. Results showed B12 at 276 and folate at 4.3 I was concerned and called GP. I was basically told it was highly unlikely that I had P.A. and that I wasn't even B12 deficient as the range started from 200 as acceptable. I asked for an IF test and after much argumentative discussion I am going to get this test done. Basically I have been left feeling like a hypochondriac who is a pest and the GP insisted that all my results were perfectly fine. I stressed that surely something could be done as the symptoms should count for something but was told no, that I was 'only deficient in iron' GP has made me feel like I had no reason to suspect PA or to even consider being checked for it. Anyone had similar issues getting back to some kind of healthy life? Thanks in advance..
