Is it normal to get strange side effects after having a B12 injection? I had my first 3 months ago with one every two days for a week. Today was my first after the three month interval and I feel odd. The skin round my eyes feels tight, I feel unsteady on my feet, and shivery and sleepy.
Secondly, I asked the nurse if she was going to include B12 in my regular diabetic blood test today. She said 'No, we only usually test once a year'. But surely, as I was newly diagnosed with low B12 only 3 months ago, we need to see if the initial injections have been effective? She reluctantly wrote B12 on the list for blood testing, but it doesn't mean it will happen!
This site is very useful but I find it difficult to find my way around, and often get lost!
