Hi All. I hope you all had a good festive break and a good start to 2015.
I suppose I am fortunate in that my gp is sympathetic to my problems and has, at present, agreed to 3 weekly injections of b12. However, I am still suffering from my symptoms - the sore tongue, tiredness and low mood specifically are bad, in conjunction with skeletal pain in shoulders and neck (not sure if this a symptom or not). My last blood test carried out when I was on 3 monthly shots my b12 was around 300 - the gp thought this should be in 1000s given I had been on maintenance shots and had loading doses. He said I am not storing the b12 and therefore need it more frequently. he also said my calcium levels were low.
I am due to go back next week for another blood test and my b12 shot, my thoughts at the moment are would a different type of b12 be better for me, ie more easier to absorb/store, at the moment I am being give hydrocobalmin?
I have also started Taking a daily b vitamin complex as I have read that this will help to metabolise the b12 shots, but wondered if anybody had any advice. I don't want to have another year of feeling rotten and just waiting for my next b12 shot.
