Just thought I'd pop in and say 'Hi' after coming to realise 2 weeks ago I have B12 deficiency and whatever else 20 odd years on Lansoprazole can do to you.
I have a GP appointment this Thursday the 18th to start the ball rolling.
I can't go on like this, I'm 49 and aging like a 90 year old mentally and physically.
The tingling and numbness in my left hand started about 5 months ago and I out it down to all sorts of issues like my family arthritis, my abused skeleton after a lengthy specialist police career and numerous motorcycle racing crashed but eventually after much correct Googling I hit on the classic B12 deficiency symptoms that We are all to familiar with.
So here goes, will try and keep this updated with my progress-mostly I am nervous of the reception I will get from the GP as I guess it really helps to have your GP onside with you.
To that end, I've printed off some of the PA Society's bumph and am dropping them in to the surgery tomorrow for the GP's attention hoping he will pre-read material and be up to speed for my 10 minute appointment; you never know what sort of GP you're going to get, be it an open mind or a closed, by-the-book robot.
We shall see!!!
