Just had a GP telephone appointment as no actual appointments available for a month following the problems of my symptoms returning detailed in this post - healthunlocked.com/pasoc/po... and been told that "I've been a GP for a long time and I've never come across anyone who needed more frequent that 3 monthly injections. And your B12 level has been retested and is now over 1000 so you should be fine." Er OK then! She went completely on the defensive when I told her that even the healthcare assistant who does the B12 injections at the surgery had told me that his patients are all "really ready for" their B12 injections when they come to see him (this was unprompted by me, he just volunteered this info). He seems to know much more about it than the GPs. Anyway, I'm not really after advice on this, just having a bit of a vent. My sister in law is coming this weekend from Spain, and bringing some cyanocobalamin for me to self-inject, so I'm going to solve this problem myself. It just annoys me that I have to. So many GPs are just not interested in actually being helpful, just following procedures.
