IBS and pernicious anaemia
Posted: Wed Apr 15, 2020 9:39 am
I suffered with 'IBS for 27 years. I was finally diagnosed with pernicious anaemia, in July 2019 and started on B12 injections. All of a sudden, my 'IBS' went away. Constant chronic diarrhoea is a classic symptom of Pernicious anaemia. Why don't 'IBS' patients get this simple blood test especially when the IBS is very badly not under control. I had a disciplinary at work because of this and eventually lost my job, and it could have been a very different story with a simple blood test. Thank you.
