Hi Broom Hilda & Rootsmith,
I believe you guys are on to something, I have been doing some research and I do believe I could possibly nave pernicious anemia, I guess it can be caused by damage from H Pylori to a certain cell in the lining of your digestive system that is necessary to absorb b12 and folic acid. I was treated for H. pylori 5 months ago. I think I had it all my life. My dad was treated a year ago. He has had ulcers from it. My granddaddy died from a bleeding ulcer in the 60’s. I don’t take nexium and I have only been on Lexapro for 3 months. I have had symptoms of this for 2 years It gets worse if I don’t take the liquid sublingual complex with b12. I just stumbled on that making be feel better. I guess you can have the symptoms of pernicious anemia long before it shows on a normal blood panel. I have a lot of the symptoms. Strange burning sensations in my lips and tongue. Sometimes my mouth feels sore. Tingling fingers and toes, cold hand even in the summer they were cold. I thought maybe I had a thyroid problem but my thyroid tested fine My heart races but if I take the vitamins it gets better. I have a GI appt. on Thursday. I’m going to printout the symptom list and highlight all the ones I have which is most except for heart failure and psychosis. But who knows, that may be next! LOL I just wish I could get to the bottom of why I feel so bad all the time. I will let you know what I find out at my appt. Thank you I may not of thought to ask the right stuff or connect the symptoms if you didn’t bring this up. Keep watching that show!
