I was diagnosed with a B12 deficiency back in 2013 (after being very ill) and was put on to injections, even though I tested negative for pa. I continued on these injections until I moved to my new doctors in October 2015, where they re-tested me for pa. When this came back as negative they told me i no longer needed the injections. My B12 level has dropped by over 500ng/l in 5 months and I am once again deficient in folate again. Yet my doctors still don't believe I need the injections. My doctor has given me a months supply on oral B12 (cyanocobalamin 50mg twice a day) and a repeat blood test to check my levels afterwards, as I feel my symptoms are resurfacing.
However my doctor made me feel very much like a hypochondriac and that I was wasting her time. So I am really asking what people would do in my situation? Would you take the tablets, even though my deficiency has not been proven to be dietary related? I am considering writing to my doctor and providing some of the research i have found, as she has a very set mind frame on the topic. I've seen that others have purchased their own B12 and begun self injecting...?
Feeling very drained at having to keep fighting with my doctor over this and I see sadly that a lot of people have gone through it - so what would be your advice!?
Thanks in advance!!
