In January I was told I was deficient in Vit B and given loading doses, then informed I would be on 3 month injections. I was also give iron and folic acid tablets to take as these were low.
I had never heard of this deficiency or PA etc until that morning and to be honest from the way it was brushed aside I didn't realise it was anything to be concerned about. Since then I have done a lot of research and joined the PA Society. Now that I have started treatment I understand it would be difficult to test for PA, although there hasn't been any suggestion of testing anyway. My diet is very rich in Vitamin B, so I assume it's an absorption problem.
I have got a few symptoms that I now know tick the boxes, and with another month or so before my next injection they are returning and I'm feeling quite unwell again.
I've taken a call today from my Dr's surgery, and the receptionists was quite sniffy with me, as I had submitted and FOI request for blood test results for the last 7 years. They are ready for my to collect tonight.
However now that I've asked for them I'm not sure what good it's going to do or how I can use it to help myself? I'm feeling generally fed up to be honest. Just getting through each day, coping with a stressful job and juggling home life is more than enough and having to battle to get help to be "better" is just too much.
Sorry to whinge but I'm not even sure why I posted this.
