I hope you had a lovely Christmas.
I had blood taken for an MMA test at the beginning of December, and blood for a B12 test taken on 19th December. I've been chasing both for a few days with the GP surgery, only to be told today that the Pathology lab refused to do both tests as they were considered to be too close to my last tests on 14th November.
I'm absolutely gutted, I still feel totally rubbish, and although I've been signed off from work (I'm a part-time teacher) for 8 weeks (two of which have been in the holidays), I have had no treatment, just test after test.
My most recent result was 156 pmol/L (200-910) on 14th November. My GP has referred me to see a haematologist and an immunologist, but of course, I'm going to have to wait for some time to see both of them (April for the Haemotologist).
I have booked an appointment with my GP on Tuesday 2nd, but I'm really not sure what to say. He's totally refused to do B12 loading doses so far.
I had a negative Intrinsic Factor (I know these aren't accurate about half the time).
I'm not sure what you can say really, I just wanted to 'speak' to people who understand. I've slept through a great deal of Christmas, which is no fun for my two sons or husband. I just want my life back.
