I haven’t had tests for PA but after a lot of research, doctors visits and tests, Im thinking b12 could be why I feel so terrible.
I’ve felt beyond exhausted for about 2-3 years now and have become extremely depressed and anxious as a result. I have a little girl who I feel almost unable to look after as I can’t even think anymore. I literally do what I have to everyday like feeding myself and my daughter but have no energy for anything else. It’s become unbearable.
I’ve had private blood tests over the months (results posted below)
I have endometriosis and have daily pain and stomach issues. I had a stool sample tested which showed inflammation so I had colonoscopy (which was clear)
I also had gastroscopy which showed a small (clinically insignificant) amount of stomach erosion. I regularly take lansoprazole and ranitidine to try to help my stomach.
Here are the many blood test results I’ve had and I’ve noticed my b12 has been dropping on each test
June. 383.0 pmol/L. (250-569)
September 353.0 pmol/L (250-569)
December. 272 ng/L. (150.0 -900.0)
March 108.00 pmol/L (37.50 - 188.00)
Nov. 59.0. pmol/L (37.50 - 188.00)
June 27.7 nmol/L (8.83 - 60.8)
September 23.8 nmol/L (8.83 - 60.8)
March. 12.98ug/l (3.89-26.80)
Nov. 9.2. Ug/L (3.89-26.80)
December. 14.2 ug/L (3.1 - 19.9)
If anyone has any advice or would share their opinions on my results it would be massively appreciated. I’m sorry for the long post but I feel desperate, I just want to feel well and enjoy life.
