The new GP said I cant have PA as red cells too small.
My vit D is very low end again having had a months intensive supply a year ago followed by monthly top up.
My ferritin is 7. Stocks are exhausted she said. Wont start prescribing until after biopsy for coeliacs on 20th in case obscures results. Fine.
Haem is 114 on low end too, though previous GP surgery not interested in doing anything. She thinks iron replacement will solve all. I am exhausted 24/7/365. Have all PA smptoms, yesterday started new horrid taste and sore tongue.
IFA negative. Hm
Has she convinced YOU I am not B12/PA?
Is testing B12 again despite my saying it shows just what is swimming around. Her answer catagoric no because of small red blood cells. Last May I had large blood cells. Does that mean anything? Nothing has happened re treatment from then to now.
She is willing to give a couple of injections of B12, possibly to placate me, which at least shows shes not against them. As we know not a lot of use but better than nothing. I do want to go the SI route. Have all the supplies arrived this week. They can not do me any harm.
Does almost zero ferritin throw up symptom of anything else I have not even thought about?
Am I missing something? Am I totally wrong? I know some of balance and falling over in total darkness cross with my Menieres Disease but they have been quite quiet until last six months.
I am still walking into door jambs, not able to walk in a straight line.
Any thoughts would be gratefully received, as ever.
