I am lucky and get monthly jabs at present and I do take B12 supplements as well for the Pernicious anaemia. Took 10 years to get diagnosis (level 75 on diagnosis and have both PA antibodies and atrophic gastritis. Frequent jabs have been keeping me well but now I am getting cold, shivery, muscle pains, high cholesterol (On low dose statin - stopped them to see if muscles improved but they did not so had to go back on it as cholesterol hit 8.5). Also get heart palpitations feel low mood and have raging dry scalp. I also get lichen planus, lichen sclerosus and dry eyes. I asked for a thyroid check and was told it was normal but they only did TSH which was 3.8. Any advice? Reluctant to nag GP in case my B12 review causes them to stop jabs. Just not feeling well but I do have elderly relatives to care for and do a lot of physical work. GP nearly always says it is stress. I wonder if I should get a private blood test to check for thyroid antibodies but is this likely if the TSH is normal at 3.8? Any advice appreciated.
