I have my first B12 injection coming up this Wednesday! I will give the nhs recommended doses a go to start with but I am preparing myself for the likelihood I will end up self-injecting to get a decent loading level.
I have looked into the posts on how to do it but have not come across anyone using an ‘insulin pen’ to do subcutaneous injections. This seems like it could be a more comfortable way of doing it, is it possible to do or are the needles too thin?
I’m pretty nervous about the idea of doing it myself but as I understand it intramuscular is the best way.
I will see how I feel after Wednesday and try to wait and see if the doctors ‘2 week then few month’ plan works but I am very eager to do this as thoroughly as possible and get on with getting better (the fact I have neuro damage I can’t see how the planned program will be sufficient). I don’t want to do too much and I want to be sensible about it all but I am keen to crack on with seeing how well I respond to a decent level of B12 not just to see if I feel a little better after a little dose.
I will let you all know how I get on!!!
