In June this year I went to the doctors because I hurt my knee running and without any info to why he decided to do some blood tests, thyroid, B12, liver function etc.
He phoned me with the results and said everything was normal except my B12 was low and told me to see the nurse twice a week over 3 weeks for 6 B12 injections. He also got me to take folic acid tablets for two weeks I think it was.
The nurse told me that I will have to have an injection every three months for ever more, and I am having the first of these next week.
I am feeling a bit in the dark here, surely I should have further tests so the doctor can check that I am low again or to discuss why this is affecting me. I also now have no idea if I should take more folic acid?
Also I now have the numbness in my fingers sometimes which I had thought was related to a problem I had with my neck/shoulder and saw physio for it but having read about the symptoms of PA I think it may have more to do with PA and that is why physio did not completely cure it. Should I see the doctor to let him know that I have this issue, as I did not see him about this.
Thinking about it I am not sure if the doctor has actually diagnosed me with PA, he really did not say much other than to see the nurse.
Any advice, thoughts would be appreciated.
