Pernicious Anemia stomach issues

I'm self injecting B12 weekly and taking daily subs so i'm certainly hammering the B12 in there, but i'm still having stomach problems where if i eat anything that must be difficult to digest like bread, cakes, crisps and well you get the idea, well when i eat my stomach feels tight, i get tired and achey, get headaches and just generally feel crappy all over, so basically i try to completely avoid all those types of foods but does anyone have any ideas how to ease these problems and tell me what it is that's causing it.

Re: Pernicious Anemia stomach issues

It might be that these symptoms arnt related to B12 deficiency, and will need some other treatment?

The doods you desribe arnt difficult to dogest, infact they are digested quite quickly, much quicker than meat.

Have you tried somthing simple like a glass of Eno or Briochi fizzy antacid?

Re: Pernicious Anemia stomach issues


I too have pernicious anemia! I'm getting treated with monthly B12 injections as you are only the nurse in the gastros office is giving it to me versus my husband. My doc told me that my stomach looks very beat up and that it's having a very difficult time digesting my food. I hope this answer helps you! Also, if you read up online, about it.....they say that yogurt soothes people with pernicious anemia although they wouldn't say why. Quiet frankly I figured out why and it's because yogurt contains good bacteria which helps the flora of your stomach and intestinal tract. You should be taking 1 capsule of a probiotic everyday which is 1,000 millagrams of good bacteria to rid your body of the bad bacteria.

I hope this helps you! Good Luck!
