Just been diagnosed as having PA and have Vitamin B12 and Folate deficiency.
Not sure I really understand what PA is.
All I know is I have Hemochromstosis and was diagnosed with this 2 years ago. My symptons were Tiredness and joint pain. Regular venesections have made me feel a little better. Until recently when I was sooooo tired, every afternoon around 2pm I get this over whelming fatigue and could easily fall asleep where I sit or stand. I knew something wasn't right so insisted I got checked for a vit deficiency of some kind as I knew I wasn't right. Anyhow I was diagnosed with Vit B12 and Folate deficiency and take folic acid and having 2 monthly Vit B12 injections. - then got tested for PA and that came back positive. the consultant said if the result may come back negative but he feels I deffo had it.... a month from the Vit B12 and folic acid in I still feel sooo fatigued and having a foggy feel to my eyesight, I get pins and needles in my hands and also realised that Vit B12 can trigger RLS (Restless Legs) which I have suffered with for many many years.
I am hoping that I will start to feel better soon as I am fed up feeling so poorly. my family must be fed up of moaning so now I keep quiet and suffer
