After a year of having low b12 I have finally been given permission to get b12 injections! They start in about a week and now more than ever I have been thinking about the effect they will have on me. In case anyone is interested my b12 results have been:
and the last set I don't know exactly what number but it was <150 (150-1000).
I have been very tired for years and just felt not right if that makes sense? I have also had chronic constipation since I was a young child and one of the worst symptoms I have has to be the dry eyes. Its like having a chronic eye strain and they feel so uncomfortable all the time. I've seen the full list of symptoms of b12 deficiency and I know dry eyes isn't on there but I was wondering if there was some indirect way my low b12 has caused this? Has anyone else known dry eyes improving with b12 shots? If not has anyone else experienced any unusual or unexpected symptoms due to b12? I'm just trying to figure out how much hope I should be putting into these injections because my GP made out its unlikely to have much affect and the specialists at the hospital are really only doing this as a trial :/
I should probably also mention that I have seen an endocrinologist and several other people and had almost everything else tested including thyroid, sjogrens, lupus etc, the endo especially has been very thorough with testing. I also seem to have low cortisol at the moment and I'm having that retested soon too.
Thanks and sorry if this was a bit long!
