I have just recently posted as Intrinsic Factor-AK antibodies tested a weak positive in a recent blood test. (I am also a registered Coelicac which was discovered when I was a baby.)
However, no B12 and Ferritin tests were taken.
For the past 2 years I have sporadically experienced water sensations on my hands and lower legs and I am now experiencing a burning/ tingling sensations in these areas. I also have a burning sensation along my left cheekbone (the trigeminal nerve). I keep mentioning these to doctors but they take no action. I even mentioned the water sensations to a neurologist who told me he didn't know about that....?!
I also feel fatigued and am also anxious due to the 'unexplained' sensations.
Since last year I have supplemented my B12 so I will need to wait a few weeks before I test. At one point, I took a powder which dissolved in the mouth so I had a very elevated B12 result and my blood was normal. However, when they ran out I changed to tablets as I was unaware of Intrinsic Factor.
Therefore, here are my results from last September:
B12: 607pg/ml (211-911)
Ferritin: 31ng/ml (10-291)
Folsaure: 16.6ng/ml (>5.38)
The following were under the normal range
Haemoglobin: 11.5g/dl (12.0-16.0)
Hematocrit: 34 V%. (36-48)
At the time they were taken, I was feeling very fatigued and experiencing all the symptoms described above.
I would be grateful for an interpretation on these results..
