I have been feeling ill for a few years now. My doctors thought I possibly had MS because of my symptoms, but after many tests, have come up with nothing. They tested my B12 and it came back at about 200, so in the normal range(?). My neurologist decided I should start getting weekly B12 shots to see if that helps. It has helped some. I have gotten some of my strength back, but I still am having a hard time with my balance and stamina. I still have a hard time using my hands and walking. My last blood test showed that, after 6 shots my B12 level is still under 600. My doctor was confused by this and said that she would have expected my level to be above 1000 by now. While doing my own research I came across pernicious anemia and asked her if I had been tested for it. She said I had been tested for general anemia and it had com back negative. Is the test for pernicious anemia different? Is it possible to have it even if the general test came back negative?
