My partner has all the symptoms of pernicious anaemia and her condition is progressive during the last 6 months. She is getting worse by the day. Too many visits to gp and specialists have not resulted to any diagnosis. So far bloodtests have shown B12 as well as folate in the normal range. Her mother was diagnosed with pernicious anaemia some 15 years ago after (also) a lengthy diagnostic process. According to gp all bloodtests have been done and nothing warrents the pa diagnosis.
-Has anybody experienced the above and how did you go about it to get a diagnosis?
-Is there a consultant in the UK who has build up some expertise on the matter?
-If you recognise the above and can advice her please do so!
Over the last couple of months she has seen herself change from a larger than life, energetic woman, into a person who barely drags herself through the days. The level of despair that this brings makes this mail a 'cry for help', as the medical professions is not yet responding.
