It has taken a referral to a private hospital to discover that I have pernicious anaemia. My serum Vitamin B12 level was 78 that my consultant says was [b:5c901319e3]very[/b:5c901319e3] low. Although I have been complaining of tingling hand and feet, shortness of breath, balance difficulties
and memory loss for well over a year it was only last December that the culprit was discovered.
Unfortunately neurological test show that I now also have slight neuropathy and it is suggested that this will not get better and that I will be left with the tingling and numbness in hands and feet.
Although it is now one month since I had the 6 loading injections I do not feel any better and in some respects I feel worse with still having to rest every couple of hours or so and now I am concious of my lips feeling 'funny' and tingling at the tip of my tongue. I also have a constantly sore stomach. My doctor will not test the B12 levels again as he says they will now be high.
Should I be worrying :?:
