Yes. I get B12 injections. It isn't for my Fibro though. I have Pernicious Anemia which means that my body no longer absorbs vit 12 through the gut as should happen. So I gave it injected into my muscles to allow absorption that way. I have it every 12 weeks. At the beginning it was more often.

It is a stingy jab, so be prepared. Nowhere near as bad as the internal explosions of cortisone though. It's over in seconds. It is also given to boost immune systems. Ask why you are having it when you get it done 🐸

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you have been suffering and struggling so much and I sincerely want to wish you all the best of luck with your injections. They are not something that I have had so I cannot say how what it is like.

All my hopes and dreams for you
