I have been contacted by the mother of a 21yr old girl who has been diagnosed as having PA. The daughter has all the signs - the "strange tiredness" (which is the best description of the tiredness yet), lethargy, memory problems, sleeping 12 hours at least per night; the usual symtoms. She has been put on B12 injection every two days and this has been going on for a month. Yet she has shown no improvement and her blood tests have NOT improved and are the same levels as they were at diagnosis. The injections are given by her mother (she's a nurse) and are given Intra Muscular. I have spoken with the patient and her mother and they are now quite concerned. The GP is scratching his head. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
