Vit B12 Blood Test and Dificiency???

Hi All,

I just rang up to ask if my blood tests are back, I had FBC, Vit B12 and Thyroid.

The receptionist said "Yes all Normal"!!!

I then ask what was my B12, she said 184....5 mths ago, it was 250, I have been very poorly, so many symptoms, palms of hands red at times, last week the roof of my mouth had red patches and I was giving Oral steroids.

So I said to her, thats hardly normal....the nice GP that I see has now gone on holiday for 2 weeks and the one that I don't seem to agree with, has marked all tests as normal.

I also tested positive 5 mths ago for Gastric Paricetal Abs but noone is taking a blind bit of notice, how poorly I've been feeling.

I'm going down the surgery now to get a print out....Wonder what else in it is gonna show...."Normal"!!

Please can anyone help on where to go or what to say fron now on?

Thanks as always
