I was previously on 3 monthly maintenance doses following diagnosis 5 years ago, but a year ago I started getting brain fog and exhaustion 6 weeks in. Since then my GP has given me jabs every 6 weeks.
But for the past 6 months I have had phases of pins and needles plus exhaustion, sometimes just a couple of weeks after the jab. This has culminated in my GP doing a further blood test to check my levels and then giving me a further top up. However, by the time he gave me the top up it was 8 weeks since the previous one and he has just said I can have them every month now. Because of the 8 week gap I am concerned it's going to take a long time for the pins and needles to go away if all I have now are monthly injections. His argument was that my level was only at 420 so he'd be surprised if that were causing the symptoms anyway. He did say that there is a better test now but that they've been told it can only be done in emergencies because it costs £100.
What do people think? Should I be asking for extra jabs until pins and needles have gone?
