I have had this text message this afternoon from my GP.
'Thank you for your enquiry about B12 injection.
Your records show that immunological blood tests for Pernicious Anaemia have been normal, therefore it is safe to have B12 injections 6 monthly.
To help reduce Coronavirus transmission, I would strongly urge you to postpone this injection by 3 months'
I'm so upset. They didn't even call to discuss this with me.
I've had the classic journey of endless struggles.
I had b12 deficiency and folate anaemia in 2016 and had loading doses and no further follow up injections as bloods 'normal' then levels dropped from 700 to just over 200 so they agreed them again in 2018 and been on 3monthly injections since. My IFAB test did come back negative.
Can some one please send me all the links to fight this with the GP. I'm 12 weeks pregnant and don't want any harm to come to my baby due to lack of knowledge from healthcare professionals. I'm presecibed iron tablets for pregnancy related iron deficiency anaemia by the midwife and I'm often low in vitamin D too so take over the counter supplements.
I'm using the better you b12 spray and take a vitamin B complex supplement daily. I am not a vegetarian.
I also have a heart condition deemed as an arrythmia called inappropriate sinus tachycardia and treated with beta blockers. Due to this my pregnancy is deemed high risk.
Thanks in advance for your help and support. Can't stop crying. I'm going to ring PAS tomorrow as I'm a member.
