Hi all. I was diagnosed with Vasculitis in July last year. Whilst they were running tests they also discovered I have pernicious anaemia. I had the loading doses which made me feel awful, irrational heart rate, palpitations etc but I also started taking steroids at the same time so i assume it was just my body getting used to it all.
I have continued to have monthly vitamin B12 injections but without fail the day after I always have palpitations and an irratic heart rate. Is this normal? It goes away and in general I do feel a lot better. Also I'm going to ask to have my thyroid function checked as I already have to autoimmune conditions and taking steroids can affect your thyroid. At the same time I'm considering asking for my folic acid to be checked as to my knowledge this has never been done. Do you think my doctor will agree to this? Thanks all!
