I have been slightly iron deficient anemic all my life. Recently i have got sick with a chest infection and was bed bound for about a week. However, after i started feeling dizzy, when walking. i experienced vertigo, worse than normal vision, and strange sensation up my spine. I developed difficulty walking because of the lack of feedback on one side. At the point my bowels pretty much packed up and stopped working with nausia on eating and pain. After about 2 weeks of these symptoms i sta®ted to get other symptoms. My hands and feet would start getting pins and needles after the slightest pressure. A lot of muscle twitching and spasms, along with general fatigue and brain fog. I went to my doctor and recieved a deficient B12 reading of 189. with a lower than normal red blood cell count of 4.4. I have a lot of left sided abdominal pain and wander.
Could I have pernicious anemia? i mean does it make sense? Because if not the next check after that is MS which i am very anxious and scared of.
