This is more a rant than a question. Just to recap. My daughter had a health screen privately which showed b12 at 127 with low folate. Went to GP who requested another test just to confirm. In the meantime I gave here oral supplements so that skewed the second test which was 255.
Over the last few days she has just slept constantly. She also has pains in arms and legs amongst other symptoms. So,After a argument with the Receptionist at the Drs, I eventually saw the GP.
She told me her blood tests were fine for PA. I stated she had only partially tested for Pa as no IF antibody test was done. Basically she thought the partial cell test was the IF test. Then she said her symptoms were not consistent with low B12. That’s when she asked me to stop shouting as here symptoms are exactly the same.
She eventually agreed to speak to the specialists at the hospital and phone me back at the end of the day when they would be free. OK that sounded better.
Anyway she just phoned me to say they would not give her B12 injections as her results are fine, but if we wanted to see a paediatrician she will send an appointment out in the post. Waiting times are up to 3 months.
Cannot get private appointment for 6weeks due to waiting list there.
So were are stuck.
Considering B12 from Germany.
Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.
