Every day I have been taking at least 5 mg of sub-lingual b12 to feel okay. I have just had 5 loading doses (1 mg every other day) and although I didn't feel terrible, it wasn't really enough, all my symptoms were slightly worse.
As I have neurological problems I was hoping she would do what the guidelines suggest and keep giving me the injections every other day until there is no improvement and I could supplement at the same time. I have shown her the guidelines which is why she agreed to start the loading doses and I have to go back today and tell her how I felt. She might say that there's not much point if I didn't feel a lot better and the guidelines only say to give 1 mg every other day so I don't think she will give me more than that.
The numbness in my right side keeps getting worse and I think the only solution will be to take even larger amounts of B12. I'm slightly nervous about taking more but I am worried about it getting worse. Does anyone else take more than 5 mg? Is it a bad idea? If I don't feel a lot better having the injections is there any point or should I just supplement myself?
I'm just not sure what to do for the best .
