Blood results could have been worse I suppose. I have to go back into the surgery and give them some more, because apparently 5 test tubes full wasn’t enough! It looks like a Vitamin B-12 deficiency. Which is ironic since one of my dissertations at uni was on Pernicious Anaemia so I have books galore on the subject. What annoys me is that I know so much about it yet couldn’t self-diagnose based on the giveaway symptoms! I self-diagnose e v e r y s i n g l e d a y for goodness sake. With Google’s help of course. We all do!
So as well as the regular injections of B12, I’m sure I read something about fresh cream chocolate eclairs being an e s s e n t i a l part of the dietary requirements…will post the link to that as soon as I find it again!!
This may of course have genetic/hereditary implications so I do have to inform family members. However, I think it’s probably best I do some ‘proper’ research before sending anyone into a panic!
