I am currenty battling with my gp to restart my b12 shots following loading doses ( in another post )
I do not have a definitive diagnosis of pa, but I am b12 and folate deficient with neuropathy, the folic acid tabs have been stopped when my last bloods showed b12 2000 plus and folate 22.
In June my mcv was 103, in Sept it was down to 101, I understand that folic acid could have this affect ? If so how would I ever be able to know what my true mcv is ?
Also my heart is scaring me to death, frequently pounding or fluttering, is this the mcv ? And when I get back to my b12 shots would these lower my mcv ?
May I ask another question too ?
In March I had an endoscopy (before the b12 def was noticed) the endo said everything was ok except for a couple of benign polyps which many people have, could this be a clearer indication that I have pa ?
