Hello there, i live in the uk and wonder if someone here can help me, here is a brief outline, my b12 was low 300 , my GP agreed I could have six loading injections of b12 as I have symptoms of tiredness burning feet aching legs terrible forgetfulness and so on. After the loading doses I felt somewhat improved so I asked if I could have them on a monthly basis as I thought every 3 months was not frequent enough, In any case after the loading doses they gave me a blood test, the number came in high
the GP wrote to me saying that I couldn't have the monthly shots as my b12 was way too high, I phoned to ask how high, reception wouldn't tell me, so I arranged for a nurse to call me back, anyway the GP called instead, he only kept saying that it is way way too high but wouldn't say how high, in the end after asking him what must have been a dozen times he said over 2000 even then he wouldn't say by how much!!!
By this time I am sick and tired of this, he said I can have one every 3 months, I know this won't help me as 2 weeks after the initial loading doses my symptoms were coming back legs and feet tingling uncomfortable, anyway after all this, I don't want to see this GP at all.
All of that being said, my loading dose was 1ml of the b12 each time, I would like to buy my own b12 and the syringe with fixed needle, to enable me to take care of this myself, as the stress of opposition is too great to fight!! my question is where is the best place place to buy these things, I'm reading various needle thicknesses and so on. Any advise please, thank you in advance!
