I recently been diagnosed with pernicious anemia in March this year, after feeling not myself for a good few months and my hair drastically thinning I decided to go Drs and ask for blood tests. I actually thought I may of had a problem with my thyroid as this runs in my mother’s side (Mom, nan, aunty all have thyroid issues).
My tsl level was 1.12 (mu/l) and they said that was normal. Dr ran other tests and my b12 came back as 92 (ng/L) and serum folate 10.4 (ug/L). With this she then tested me for parietal cell antibodies which came back positive so I had a loading dose of six injections in April and then was told every 3 months after continuing for life and was left at that.
Few weeks after the loading doses I felt so much better, confusion had gone, my sever constipation which I had for many years was gone (sorry tmi probably) aches in wrists gone, the only negative was from the injections was a lot of spots and a sandy paper feeling to skin but now only after six weeks since last injection I am starting to feel tired again, wrist is starting to ache and things are slowing up in toilet movements too. Do you think I should go back to Drs and ask for some more regular injections or just see how I go?
Thanks for any advice ☺️
