I'm 27 going on 87 at the moment, most people laugh about me being so tired all the times or when I yelp in pain due to the pins and needles but It's all to much for me now. I was told over a year ago one of my antibody tests come up with pernicious anaemia, My Gp decided to write it off as a fluke as my b12 was borderline.
My folate was low then but that's pretty normal for me now, I know that If I stop the folic acid I will go back the magic 2.2 level (Always the same).
Health wise I was active mum working 5days a week split between 2 schools, That slowly dwindled down as I struggles some days just to move let alone stay awake. The joint pain is getting worse, sometimes I struggle to walk without severe pain or even just having a chance to type can take 10x longer.
Oh and then I have the forgetfulness that I like to call 'Where's my Kettle', It kind of explains it all really I forget things quite a lot mid task. My poor kettle has slept in the shed a few nights, Sat in the porch with the post I had put back outside for some unknown reason and then I have put it in the fridge/cupboards/oven. I normally remember sometime later, It's kind of a light bulb moment it suddenly pops into my head.
I had to leave work early today as I went really odd, In the staffs words I went really absent I cannot remember it at all. I just remember being touched by them trying see if i was ok and feeling like I was going to fall asleep.
I've been numb for a while now, It started off that I would get it a few times during the day but I now constantly feel like I have been standing on ice for hours or the walking on air effect.
It's pretty depressing more so when the doctors don't seem to listen to me, Even more so when the Gp tells you off for going back with the same problem.
