I have PA that was finally diagnosed 7 years ago. I was on 12 week B12 and the past couple of years 8 weeks.
My story briefly 2002 pneumonia in hospital 2 weeks HB Low. Wouldn't come back up and I had no store of iron. I had an Iron infusion. Muddled through being monitored. Had to have another iron infusion in 2004. Again carried not brilliant had an ablation of the womb to hopefully stop me having to have Iron infusions which did to ab extent. 2008 came when everything went terribly wrong.
I was exhausted had respitory issues that were put down to chest infection and plurasy. Would not go away so referred to hospital and had a tumor in my thymus gland. This was removed but I was not recovering after surgery. I had no energy and was referred back to deseases where I was diagnosed with PA. started B12 and had to have another Iron infusion, other test to see what damage had been done to stomach but luckily ok. They paralized my left vocal cord removing the tumour and I have to have ongoing surgery to maintain as have issues with swallowing so Jan cut the esopagus nerve. Been tested for different neurotically issues.
Well in May I had to have hysterectomy as I was issues and this was my best option.
I am alway ready for B12 at 8 weeks and alway pick up after it. But this time I didn't. My bloods in July were just in normal range. I went to the doctors a couple of weeks ago as I was so exhausted and couldn't cope and was sleeping over 12 hours at night uninterrupted and a good 2 1/2 hours in the day too. I was and still in a daze if I try to do anything extra at work, home or go out. I have had more blood test which I know will not be any different from July but the doctor is ruling out other things as he suspects that I have fatigue syndrome !!! I went to see if moving B12 to 4 or 6 weeks might improve my symptons.
Been on anti depressants for a couple of years or so. All I would like is to be able to go to work. Look after my family and have a small social life. It seems I get over one hurdle and straight away get another issue.
I am going back to doctors tomorrow for verdict. Is there something that I am missing I can ask or do before getting another diagnoses that I don't really know how it will affect me in years to come.
Any one else in similar case to me?
