Have looked at my discharge hospital report and the main cause

Resolved Question:

Have looked at my discharge hospital report and the main cause was considered to malnutrition due to a possible lifelong deficiency of vitamin B12 but I'm sure they had difficulties in determining an adequate diagnosis. I went from walking to using a wheelchair in a matter of months.
