I have hypothyroidism and pernicious anaemia. After much frustration with the NHS I am now practically self treating both conditions. I am feeling unwell again, tiredness, nausea, headaches, cold hands and feet. I don't know why but feel the symptoms are more pernicious anaemia than thyroid, although I know when one is out of sync it will affect the other.
I inject myself with B12 injections every two weeks. I am not noticing any difference in my symptoms after I inject.
My questions are :-
1) How do I know if the B12 I am injecting is enough, do I need more? some people inject daily, how do you know if you need more?
2) If the B12 is reaching my cells? Just because there is more than adequate in my blood, does that mean that amount is reaching my cells?
3) How does a person know if they would fair better on the active B12 injection, Methylcobalamin?
4) Where can I go for help with this? I am going to arrange to have a B12 blood test with Blue Horizon that will show my current B12 levels.
I would be so grateful for any help or assistance on this.
