Just back from GP:
Grumpy bit first :
Finally, after 14 weeks, this from neurology:
MRI brain scan results: "There are scattered patches of white matter T2 high signal. The extent of this microangiopathic change is not excessive for age."
.....otherwise normal. Well that's good...... or is it ?
This bit bothered me "...not excessive for age." Why ? Because haematology said the same thing about my raised MMA levels. I'm 59. I looked it up: in all the research I could find, raised MMA levels can be normal "in the elderly ". Like I said; I'm 59.
Since I don't want to be 80 before I've been 60, if anyone can put my mind at rest (or otherwise) I would be very grateful. Either way, I need to know what's going on, and this guy has already told me that he doesn't know much about B12 deficiency, so I'd rather hear from someone who does.
I'm not having a particularly good day today, but it's been a long wait and I'm tired.
This bit is Happy:
GP said that she'd talked to the nurse and she can't help me with the injections, so I told her that I was doing them myself anyway. She was fine about it, even once I told her the frequency (every other day) and she even said I was looking better. Glad I told her !
