hi all, I went to the doctors finally in October after 2 years of utter exhaustion, it was by then affecting my relationship etc as I had withdrawn from all socialising in the evenings etc. it took everything I had to do my full time job. at the time I did not link other symptoms which I now know to be linked ie pins and needles, stabbing pains in my fingers and chest, hair falling out. being psychologically so very low at times. I was lucky in that the doctor I happened to get an appointment with that day was knowledgeable in b12 and PA. he tested me and my b12 was around 150. I had loading injections every week for 5 weeks and now I am on every two months as the symptoms returned with vengeance after around 7 weeks. i tested negative for IF, this was done after all my loading doses. I haven't had any advice about next steps as I still dont know the route cause of my condition. can anyone advise whether I should press for this or just accept I am at least lucky to be receiving the treatment at the frequency I need it as I know many arnt from following this site.
