Hello all. Not been on for last month as had horrific time in hospital, now battling with doctors - again! I have some sort of adrenal failure and been so ill! Guess what? No diagnosis!
I wrote a month ago that I was getting severe weakness in my legs...turned out not B12 related but probably the above.
Anyway, I was in hosptital for 2 and a half weeks. I felt fine (B12 wise) so thought I'd see what I was like without injecting for a week (as this is all I am prescribed). Ok at first, but started to give myself every other day injections after the first weak. Problem was nowhere to discard needles and I was doing it in secret. Wrapped needles up and disposed of them when I got home.
Anyway, the last few days I have had an increase in burning feet/pins and needles, I am so scared now that I have permanent damage as I stopped my injections too long. My symptoms started around 4 months ago. I am taking amitriptyline 10mg for this.
Should I try daily injections? What are other people experiences?
This year has been hell and I now distrust every damn doctor in the UK.
