After running to doctors for quite a while for tingling lower leg and arm I was finally diagnosed with a mild pernicious anaemia. I've been taking iron for a while already as ferritin was low, and started feeling better relatively quickly, and ferritin started to fill up again. I also started to take B12 tablets, but they didn't really do anything After this diagnosis I started taking 1ml b12 injections, 3x per week, 10 times now.
Well.. the tingling got worse I would say and spread out more
In the last blood test the MCV is still near the upper edge of normal, MCH, MCHC have moved to the middle of normal. RWD was initially high, but has gone down again. When that test was originally done I had an asthma attack, which might explain the high RWD.
Right, I feel good, only the tingle got worse. I don't know if it's related to the anaemia, or if I had such anaemia in the first place. If it was caused by it then I understand that the tingle might not vanish quickly? Anyone here who experienced a worsening upon starting a therapy? The doctor I'm seeing suggested only taking one injection per month now.
Here's the strange bit: I was very out of breath the last few days. When I decided to do an injection again after a nearly 2 week break the out of breath feeling was gone in around 4 hours. That did happen once before, but I cannot imagine such a quick effect. Or is it possible?
