I have tried to read as many posts as I can but get a little confused and my GP doesn’t help the issue.......
I saw my GP with my partner after my first 2 month jab after loading doses to ask for more frequent injections. My neurological symptoms had worsened too. We spoke of the guidelines but she was not interested and said that maybe I didn’t have PA as my MCV was 95.7 back in end of Nov when she diagnosed me and now it was 92.4 ( range 80-100). She said it would have been higher.. it this true?
I have started injecting every other day and feel much better. It’s my 5 th tomorrow and I feel that things are starting to improve. My question is.. do I continue injections every other day until my neurological symptoms stop Improving or until all my symptoms stop improving?
I have just started taking methyol folate on advice from my other previous posts but are concerned that as my folic acid/folate level rose to 22 from 3.2 (range 3.7-18.7) that I should wait for this to go down. I had read that even if I have a mutant gene or malabsorption issues that I should be able to use some of it? And that it is not good to have high levels in your blood of unmetabolised FA? ( I have sent off my sample for the 23 gene test).
At present, I am not taking any other supplements as I want to get results for them first, so I know where I am. Will I know if one becomes too low by deteriation in my B12 symptoms? I am looking out for the signs too and eating a verygood diet and taking on the advice about potassium and magnesium etc.
I know my last question is really for the thyroid forum but must just wondered if I should be concerned. My TSH rose from 2.32-3.66 over 9 weeks (range 0.27-4.2). My GP of course said this was fine. I am re-doing my thyroid test as my sent sample was void.
Without this forum I would be so lost, so thank you to everyone who posts so much to help us all.
