I finished my loading injections nearly 3 weeks ago and I was just starting to get some energy back, only a small amount but I noticed it and I ached less. However in the last week I have become just as tired as I was before I started. My doctor is one of the 3 month only rule. I am also vitamin D deficient for which she prescribed pills for two months and then I have to buy them. I can go back for b12 injection in 3 months and she will also restest my vit b12 and vit D in 3 months.
I also have ME and under active thyroid since 2007 and had to give up work in 2014. Despite stoppoing work I have slowly been feeling wrose in the last 18 months which is why I asked for vit B12 and vit D blood tests having notice no change with an increase in thyroxine pills.
I am considering getting some B12 medication to see if I can get anymore energy back and stop all my muscles aching. From time to time I also get pins and needles in fingers and feet and I have even been know to almost put an item in the fridge that was meant for the microwave.
Is it worthwhile taking any additional B12 yet or is it too soon and I am impatient to get a life back. If yes what would be the best to go for and what sort of dosage please. I don't like the idea of injecting yet.
My intrinistic facor test was negative and folate and iron are OK.
Also any suggests on best vitamin D supplement and amount I should take would be appreciated as I will soon have to start buying some. My perscription ones are 800 iu once a day.
My B12 test result was 110 and vitamin D 45nm ol/l.
Thanks for reading.
