Sorry for the constant questions i ask on here, but as you know its quite a lonely but rollarcoaster of am illness
I have two questions...
I had a high (MCV) again don't know the level, going to try and get a print out tomorrow. The doctor didn't give me a 'diagnoses' per say but would megaloblastic anemia be if my MCV level is high?
Also I haven't been prescribed loading doses and just to have injections every 3 months, (my first one tomorrow eek), my main symptoms are not neurological, my main symptoms are mainly 'gastro' though I do having aching, shooting pains in my legs(sometimes in my hands and feet) but tried to tell the doc this but you how they like to rush you out the door, its just mainly stomach issues, everything fine in bloods apart from obviously low folate and b12 lol! So am i still entitled to loading injections? I am feeling pretty unwell. Nausea, full when eaten a little (read that is precious symptom, so is it worth further testing? I'm on folic acid 5mg. To me it doesn't sound an injection every 3 months cuts it and i havent even started, it sounds so far apart.
I found out my great nan had 'precious anemia' and had injections every month.
I just want to make sure i get the right treatment as im feeling pretty unwell at the moment and have been really for the last 2/3 years.
