Became a member of PAS last week, and wish I'd done it years ago! The information available, and advice from members on the forum has blown me away. So, I'd appreciate any advice you could offer me.
Diagnosed with PA 8 years ago, I'm not aware (apart from post B12 loading) of my levels being checked or monitored). Receiving B12 jabs every 8 weeks, but still don't seem to function on all cylinders, perhaps 50% of them!
Last jab was 1st June, short term memory is shocking, numbness in fingers and toes seem to be a permanent factor, and a couple of weeks ago my arms and legs started to turn purple intermittently, (Google suggests Livedo Reticularis?) and not effected by temperature. Joint and tendon pain is also a new symptom.
I'm waiting for B12 to arrive ordered on line, Methylcobalamin 500mcg, and intend to self I'M inject. Waiting to hear from GP regarding blood tests to measure levels pre and during self medication.
Can anyone recommend what shoul be tested, frequency I should inject and other supplements that may help?
I'm hoping to maintain my ability to park the car without damaging paintwork or attracting an audience, which starts to happen a couple of weeks before I get my jab!
