Hi, I had my Vit B12 Result say 299 in 2015. It was in range but on bottom . My dr put me on Vit B12 Sublingual for 2 weeks and next visit she gave me an injection of B12, she then sent me over to lab and had me get Intrinsic Factor and Gastric Partial tst.
The test said Positive for IF test, and Equivical for GPA test. She then said I had Pernicious Anemia and gave me a total of 47 injections over 8 months. My levels went quickly up to 2000. I never felt any better from shots, I would be in bed feeling sick, and started getting pins and needles in my feet and legs, and was shaking from shots, and felt very anxious. I found a new Dr. she said she didn’t think I had PA and stopped shots. She ran Intrinsic Factor test result was 0.9 no range was on test. Plus I had so much B12 in me . She also ran GP cell test it was 30.9 no range on test. Also she did MMA test and Homeocistine test which werein range. The first Dr never did Homeocistine or MMA test at time she did IF test. Im feeling awful as my short term memory and now depression no energy, My last Vit B12 levels were 512 in September.
Im taking Sublingual B12 and it has been keeping around 500. My vitD is 38. I also have Hashimotos thyroid for 20 years. And have been on Lexapro for over 15 years. The 1st Dr had put me on Ativan because of shaking. Itapered off that and have been off for 8 months. I can’t figure out if these Test were all wrong or if I have PA. My symptoms are fatigue, short term memory, shaking, no appetite, diahrea, and depression which I neber had before the shots.,or the Ativan. I do have Colegnus Colitis which can cause Diahrea. Plus after being on all these meds my Thyroid levels are off and I have high RT3. The Thyroid meds have been changed 4 x this Summer, still struggling.
Im wondering what any of you think about the Pernicious Anemia...can all these test be wrong under the circumstances of way they were done. Could I actually have PA and maybe Ii just needed more shots? Or could the shots 47 of them made me this sick? Help? Thx
