I have felt so bad for so long that I actually forgot I had this blogspot. But now I’m getting better and I thought I’d talk about here. I’m not sure anyone will see this, but just in case, maybe someone who needs some answers about their health will find it here.
For years I have been so tired I could hardly get up every day. I’d wake up refreshed and feeling great until I actually sat up and then I was already done and wanted a nap. I’ve seen many doctors and talked to many health experts and they all said “Lose weight”. Well, I’m sure they’re right, but I couldn’t do that either. I went on diet after diet and nothing worked. In fact, I gained weight with most of them. Over the years, a couple of wise doctors had said “Maybe it’s pernicious anemia.” But nobody explained it and they certainly didn’t look past the weight.
I had diverticular disease and almost died from it until Dr. Scott Fisher in Colorado Springs fixed me. I have Barrett’s Esophagus from the years of reflux caused by the diverticulitis episodes. I take Nexium for the Barrett’s. These were all strikes against me.
The human body requires “instrinsic value” to process Vitamin B-12. If you have any type of intestinal or digestive issues or you take anything like Nexium or similar meds, you probably do not have IV. And if you do not, then you probably have pernicious anemia. And it’s such a simple fix that I was astounded. All it takes is a B-12 shot on a regular basis and you can cope with life and actually have a life.
So, if you are feeling wrung out all day even in the mornings, and you have any type of digestive or intestinal disorder or you take meds like Nexium or similar, have your doctor check your blood. You may be fixable. 🙂
