Hi guys, about 8 days ago I was diagnosed with pernicious anaemia by my new doctor. Intrinsic factor was negative and b12 level was 154. I've since had 3 intramuscular injections. I am now supposed to give myself 2 more this week, then 1/ week for 4 weeks. Then start monthly, then 3 monthly.
It's crazy how much better I feel after a b12 injection. I feel like I actually have some energy to get things done. Muscle soreness subsides, and peripheral tingling doesn't occur. The problem is that I only feel this way for about 48 hours after the injection.
I'm worried that when my injections become further apart I will be stuck with the same old symptoms.
This is the treatment plan she has in store for me. I was just wondering if anyone else has taken the initiative to buy their own without a prescription and dose themselves regularly?
