Hi, I'm new here. I saw a news report recently about PA patients supplementing their NHS injections with stuff bought off the internet. When the interviewee listed her symptoms, it was like someone listing everything I had been to see my doctor about in the last few years. Looking at the PAS website I started to believe that I am also a sufferer. My gastroenterologist agreed to rest my B12 and intrinsic factor antibodies. B12 was 394 and IFA was negative. My GP was reluctant to offer B12 injections as a trial, despite into from PAS, so I started to supplement with sub lingual lozenges, using 3x1mg daily. Over the last month my symptoms have reduced; improved mood, energy, tolerance, improved thinking, memory, improved eyesight (no longer feel like I'm looking through dirty specs) and improved continence. Still have raging tinnitus and feel I have a long way to go before I can feel like I'm managing my life again, but I don't know what to do about asking for B12 injections again. GP now recognises that the B12 has caused improvement, but says I should just stick with the lozenges and shouldn't need the injections. I'm just wondering if I would see better, quicker improvement if I had the injections. What do others think? Thank you.
