Hi, I have been going to my GP for over a year with fatigue, headaches, blurry vision and joint pain. She said you are a working mum, what do you expect. I pushed for vitamin tests and I thought I had reumatoid arthritis so asked for antibody testing. She phoned me with the results to say I didn't have RA but I had antibodies from my gut and need to keep checking my b12 regularly.
My dad had just passed away at this point so was not in a good place and just felt frustrated that I still didn't have a diagnosis for my symptoms.
I went back before Christmas to ask for more of an explanation. She said you have pernicious anemia as you have intrinsic factor antibodies but your b12 was fine last time so we will just check it yearly.
Now I went home and started reading about all this and surely she should have put me on injections as I've got the diagnosis?
Has anyone else got joint pain? my knees are so painful. I'm only 38 but I feel like my body is 65...
