Hi there, I'm Lily. I was diagnosed with b12 deficiency about 2 months ago (level was 98) after a few months of tiredness and neurological symptoms. I started hydroxocobalamin injections once a week and after number 4 was starting to feel good. After i had my 5th injection however, i started to feel worse and could feel myself getting tired again and feeling unsteady all the time. I've felt this way ever since which is incredibly frustrating. After my 7th injection i had another blood test which showed my level at 970. I'm torn because i don't know whether i should just keep going with the patches and sublingual methylcobalamin and deal with the side effects or just stop taking them for awhile since it's really difficult to work or do anything for the day or two after i take any b12.
I'm just wondering if anyone knows why i would be feeling so tired since i thought b12 was supposed to do the opposite. Any response would be appreciated.
