I have just seen my fathers death certificate and he had PA,
I have suspected I have b12 deficiency for a while but b12 is in range, 1st one was 287 the next about 5, my folate is on the low side,
In my medical records which most are missing, I see in the past I had oval macrocytis and others just macrocytitis
My MCV MCH are always at the very top of the range but in range,
I have a degenerative spine, and have pins and needles in hands, and numbness on my legs I also have no lower reflex.
, when I sit on the toilet I get pins and needles in my legs and bottom,
Is there any genetic testing snp numbers know to point that you may have PA gene fault as I have a 23andme genetic test last year, so could look up in my raw data.
I am tired most of the time, my eyes go blurry at times and other times they are ok.
I get dizzy on standing at times and more recently I have gone of my food ,
I had graves when I was younger so have had auto immune ,
I’m now hypothyroid but not auto immune it’s where Drs killed my thyroid off, so on medication for that..
I sometimes wake up feeling like I have been hit by a train sort of a big hang over feeling but I do not drink..
I am also very moody and irritable it’s horrible to be this way
I understand thyroid and PA symptoms maybe similar
could anyone help me on what and if I can ask Gp to testas they haven’t as yet taken me seriously and wondering if they should do further investigations now I have the evidence my father had OA,
Thank you for taking time to read this and any answers will be appreciated 🙂
