Hi - glad to find you all.

I've been frustrated trying to get diagnosed and treated for B12 deficiency. My old doc says it's primary progressive MS, which doesn't have any conventional treatment – but they're willing to try a bunch of expensive drugs just in case. (Boy, in the US, if you don't have thyroid problems, MS, or cancer, nobody wants to deal with you.) My new naturopath tested me, gave me five weekly B12 shots and became discouraged. I'm going in for an IV infusion of B12 and other vitamins, and working on getting a prescription of methyl or hydro B12 to self-inject. I know it will take time, and I'd sure like to get started. I was fine up until two years ago, and now hobble around with a cane and sometimes fall right over.
