Four years ago Blood test B12 was 209. Dr started me on B12 sublingual. Then week later gave me injection Cynocolbium, thenShe sent me to lab for intrinsic Factor, Gastric Partial test. She did not order Homeocistine or MMA. The Intrinsic Factor said Positive. Gastric Partial Cells said Eqivical . So she said I had Pernicious Anemia.
I had 47 injections of Cynocolbium that summer, and every shot made me feel no better, (not sure if it was Cynocolbium reaction) My B12 levels were up to 2,000.
I had found a New Dr (Internal Med) to help with on going symptoms, She ran a Homeocistine and MMA said They were Normal and I Didn’t have Pernicious Anemia.
The thing is I did NOT have a break from B12 before she did the test.
And since the 1 st Dr never ran Homeocistine and Mma at time of Intrinsic Factor to confirm.
I haven’t had a shot since 3 years ago , just been taking sublingual, my B12 is down to 480 and I feel worse with Symptoms, memory loss, tremors, pins needles in lower legs, insomnia, chronic Diahrea., no energy, .....
Do you know of any other test I could get to definitely see if I have Pernicious Anemia?
Someone once said a Bone Marrow test ...?? Sounds painful. And expensive.
If I actually have PA and haven’t been getting shots, maybe its the reason Im so sick, can it cause neurological problems? I know this sounds confusing, Hopefully someone will respond, i also have Hashimotos thyroid. High RT3. Thank you
