Hi, just doing a bit more research on chronic gastritis as the cause of PA. I had being doing well by giving up gluten and self-injecting monthly. Bowel habits were back to normal and I was feeling positive. Lately I have started to get bloating and pain after eating, and have other symptoms such as joint pain (ankles and knees) which are getting me down. Bowels also gone back to how they were before. I just wondered how many people have regular (or any initial) endoscopy by their GP to check the gastritis and as procedure to monitor for gastric cancer?
Would like to hear from anyone who has been tested for H pylori infection too. I want to talk to my GP about more tests,- H pylori vitamin D, homocysteine so that I have more information about my health but I am worried she might think they are unnecessary.
