Trying to keep this short... query ref AMAs and PBC, please.
I have been complaining of various symptoms for a few years. Was initially told possibly Post Viral Fatigue/CFS. Later diagnosed pernicious anemia for which I now get B12 injections, and POT syndrome. ESR and CRP levels consistently elevated, plus MCV, RBC count, total white cell count and Lymphocyte count a little out of range. Also lab flagged up 'elevated alpha bands, query acute reaction' but I do not know what this means!
None of this has really been explained and I continue to feel unwell.
Looking at some old blood tests I noticed M2 mitochondrial an (EIA) lev (c) tested over a year ago. The result was 0.9, which I gather is the high end of 'weakly-positive' - I did what all good GPs hate and googled it!? I suppose that as my GP did not bring this result up, he is not concerned. Should I take comfort from this, or can the result start to fall into the positive band after a while, in which case, should I ask to be re-tested? The screening was repeated 5 times over a year, but the M2 mitochondrian part of the test was carried out just once and not repeated along with other parts so I can not see any increase/decrease in the result. I could not find info about this online anywhere and wondered if anybody here had experience or knowledge of this scenario.
Thank you very much for reading my question - I have more info if it is relevant but did not want to burden you more than necessary!
