I have an appointment tomorrow with my GP who is actually pretty helpful but as seems to be the norm....doesn't seem too ofay with B12 issues, so I am looking for advice so as to go in best informed!
I have had x 5 loading doses of B12 after serum level 141. Tested neg to IF and GPC antibodies. Local guidelines for Gloucs say that I should now receive nothing until retested in 6-12months. Hahahaha!!!! Actually I'm not laughing at all of course. I intend to present the BSH guidelines which as I have neuro symptoms I believe state that I should receive injections every other day until improvements cease, and then receive 2 monthly injections thereafter, however I am expecting to meet opposition to this suggestion.
My questions to anyone that can help are: When you take PPI's (I was on omeperazole for approx 10years on and off), is the damage from that permanent, or can it resolve once you are no longer on those meds? Similarly with Nitrous Oxide (I had multiple tooth extractions in the 70's, two children, and several major and minor operations which I know involved Nitrous Oxide), is the damage from that permanent or does it resolve once B12 levels have recovered?
Sorry if this was a long post; I wanted to give background!
Many thanks for any replies, 😃 xx
