After eventually seeing a neurologist with regard to my tingling limbs, I have today received a copy of a letter he sent to my GP.
He says that the MRI scan was normal, so pleased about that.
However, he then says, quote:
"I note she as a positive parietal cell antibody and that some provisional blood tests have, in essence, returned as normal. This included a normal B12."
All I can find about positive parietal cell antibody is that it is something to do with the stomach lining, but I don't really understand it.
Six years ago following a gastroscopy (due to feeling sick a lot of the time) I was told I had H-pylori and given a course of antibiotics to take, but this was never followed up to see if it had been cured.
For the past ten days or so I have been suffering from the same symptoms - feeling really sick/bitter sour taste, especially when lying down - so have gone back on the proton pump inhibitors every day to try and fix it, but no luck so far.
Feeling a bit worried now Is this positive parietal cell antibody serious?
Funny thing is that he doesn't want to see me again and the GP surgery will undoubtedly just file the letter away.
