Hi all, sorry to be a pest but I updated my original post yesterday after seeing the GP but think it might have got lost! Anyway, here it is and any help/advice would be greatly appreciated:
Well I've been to see the GP armed with my list of symptoms and some important facts about low B12 and she totally fobbed me off! She's told me she won't treat me as I'm not anaemic and that a lot of my symptoms aren't caused by low B12 and tried to tell me I'm depressed and anxious, highly surprised she didn't just write me a prescription out there and then for antidepressants.
She said if my b12 was like 60 then she'd start treatment even though I pointed out to her numerous times that it was below their range of 190 and asked would I not feel better if was at least within the huge range?
I feel totally deflated and fed up with being fobbed off and have had a few tears, partially cos I'm so frustrated but also cos I feel sorry for myself!
She told me she will retest me in 6-12 weeks as result might be a blip! She then agreed to test my intrinsic factor and paretial whatever in mid november then if pernicious anaemia will start me oon B12 injections once every 3 months for life probably. She didn't want to commit to lifelong treatment to which I told her I've been taking Levothyroxine since I was 15 so that really doesn't bother me! She told me to take a multivitamin containing B12 but not sure what to recommend as she was not read up on mutivitamins!
I mentioned that for many years I took metformin but she said that won't have effected my stomach at all.
Anyone got any further advice or do I just have to wait for next bloods?
