My GP allowed me to trial one B12 injection every other day for the period of a month after I showed him the information in the BNF guidelines relating to those people who have a B12 reading of below 200 as well as neurological symptoms (as do I). I improved enormously over that time, although by no means completely.
However, after one month, he stopped the treatment as he said he did not know what the long term effects of injecting in this way would be and that it was too risky to my health to continue. He wanted to know what 'until no further improvement' meant in real terms.
I am now injecting once weekly while we try to find an answer to his concerns - and my symptoms have returned sufficiently that I am again unable to work. This, however, has not shifted his stance. So, does anyone know:
a) where I might find documentation to support my return to 1 injection every other day for a longer period of time;
b) the names of any doctors (private or NHS) who would be able to advise either myself or my doctor?
Thank you so much.
