    I have a B12 deficiency and have 3 monthly B12 injections. Don't know if it affects my pain levels or my RA in general but I do get really tired towards the end of the 3 months.

  • My daughter was able to get her injections more frequently and it has helped a lot with her fatigue. Worth asking?

  • Hi, my daughter has B12 deficiency and some Sjogren's symptoms. I have RA and Sjogren's. I have read a lot about auto-immune diseases and B12 deficiency is included in several and on its own is called Pernicious anaemia.

    I think auto-immune diseases sort of overlap each other.

    I wonder if your history of nuclear engineering could have affected your immune system?

    As far as other vitamins are concerned I do know that there is an association between auto-immune diseases and low vitamin D. Have a look at the web site for the Vitamin D council. And for B12 look at Pernicious

  • The only people I know who have B12 injections are also Type 2 Diabetes.

  • I met someone a while ago who has Pernicious Anaemia and has Vit B12 injections monthly. She was a very strange colour - a sort of yellow with deep wrinkles but I'm not sure if that had anything to do with her condition? Following the pins and needles episode (and I'm still tingly!) I asked my GP to check my Vit B12 and it came back normal. He did say he was sure he'd have checked that routinely as part of my investigations but I'm not sure he had. Your thyroid should also be checked as if it's underractive it can cause joint pain and significant stiffness.

  • Hi Minka

    People with RA certainly are more susceptible to anaemia so it would be worth mentioning this to the consultant when you see them.

    Kind regards
