I am rather confused as to how you diagnose PA - I feel I aquired it after a bad bout of SIBO where Ive already had long term low b12 (nerve damage) and my folate level was at 3.6 (Im taking methyl folate now) and my body ended up going into multi organ failure
My colon swelled up, as has my spleen, I was feeling sick to the pit of my stomach, wretching (my whole body felt like it was starving of oxygen) Ive worked out the nerves in my spine were on fire ergo being destroyed, so was my brain also on fire, my colon same, my blood pressure was through the roof, vertigo, the ability to swallow was going, as was to be able to breath
I went to A&E 5 times, 2 GP visits, 1 walk in health centre where 3 nurses said yr seriously ill but would not even call an ambulence, and instead forced me to leave
In the end I ended up self injecting b12 for the first time in the street, if I hadnt I know I would have died
My question is that I keep on being told that I cant have pernicious anemia, as my hemoglobin is fine/mid range, yet the above symptoms fit for PA
2. Does anybody know a PA/B12 literate doctor - my colon has sustained serious nerve damage, and has slowed down to a crawl and Ive lost my appetite
All Ive been given is a powerdered laxative, and thats it - I seriously worry that Im still got to die
Can anybody help me please???
