Hi everyone I'm new to this forum, I hope anyone could possibly shed some light on my confusion of PA. I have been anaemic on an off for about three years, usually blamed on my fibroids. Having had my uterine embolised about 8 months ago,I though all would be well, but, alas, no. I had some blood tests recently due to sore, painful mouth-ulcers and redness, the results showed again I was anaemic and with but B12 deficiency. A later test revealed that my IF was 'normal'. I'm still waiting to see the doctor to decide the course of action. Could I still have PA if my intrinsic factor is normal? Also, I was vit D deficient a couple of years ago which I found bizarre, as I always go out having two dogs that are walked twice daily. I have had bowel problems in the past that I also blamed on my fibroids (diarrhoea frequently) that has returned. Thanks to anyone that has took the time to read my post.
