Hello everyone, I posted on here last week after feeling really good after I self injected with Hydroxocobalamin. I really felt wonderful and thought all my ill feelings were far behind me. I felt so energetic and alive, it was fabulous. This week I feel dreadful again, very tired, headaches, nausea, pins and needles & numbness in my right hand and low mood.
I have been reading past posts and I have read that others have felt the same when first injecting, as it takes time to heal. My problem is I don't know how often to self inject? Is my body crying out for more B12 and that's why I'm feeling unwell again? I decided to mirror the loading dose that someone newly diagnosed with PA would be given from their GP. I have had 4 injections so far.
Or could it be my folate is low? would that have an impact on the effectiveness of the Hydroxocobalamin? I had some blood tests taken over a week ago. I will call the doctors surgery for the results later today.
Any guidance on this would be appreciated and also I'm very interested in other peoples experiences.
Like us all, I just want to get well and stay well so that I can get on with my life.
Wishing you all a lovely day x
