Absolutely flabbergasted at this weeks events.
Told on 28th Nov I’m B12 deficient (test result was 190). Put on tablets. Told since second blood test that I’m no longer deficient and in range (530) agreed to 4 injections anyway (once a week) attended this morning for the first, nurse queried why I wasn’t on the standard loading doses of 3 a week for two weeks then spaced out thereafter...advised me to book urgent appt with doc. Went this evening for the doc to refuse ANY injections saying you’re in range and NOT deficient.
I’m in total shock...I can’t be bothered to list all symptoms again but I’ve practically got them all.
I walked out after reading her a section from ‘Living with PA..’ by M Hooper that specifically highlighted the importance of treating symptoms regardless of results. She said it was wrong...I have no hope there. That’s the 5th doctor who won’t listen to me.
I appreciate I may be wrong but surely it’s easier to go down this route first to eliminate it before looking at ME or something else. It’s harmless and cheap. I’m at a loss...I’m not going back, cancelled my other injections and going to register at another practice tomorrow. In the mean time I’ll have to self administer and hope for the best.
