Anyone else with Pernicious Anaemia?

I’m a new mumsnetter with a LO under 1, and I have Pernicious Anaemia. An absolutely terrible condition to have 😭 I’m 30 and have been battling constantly - approx 10 years - to have more frequent injections due to pins and needles/periods of numbness in my left hand.
Currently have injections 10 weekly but GP wont entertain the idea of more frequent injections.

Family history of PA, hypothyroidism and heart problems so can’t wait to see how things go as I age 😂🙈

Any other PA warriors on here? How do you cope with babies on a bad day!? Xx

I’ve read that some people who can’t manage between injections take sublingual B12, the methyl one.
But look into it and see
