Good Morning, just been for my B12 injection. I asked the nurse if I could have the injection earlier and she said I could have it up to a fortnight earlier.
The problem I'm having now is my blood is taking ages to clot. When I had my injection, ( only a little prick) it was bleeding for ages and wouldn't stop. The nurse had to press for ages and eventually it stopped. She asked me if this has happened before and I told her that every time I cut myself, it bleeds for ages before stopping. It's just like a major accident.
This has been happening for years but the docs say there's nothing wrong so I've just carried on but lately it got worse. I cut my finger the other day and it kept bleeding, I had to change the plaster quite a few times as it was soaked with blood. My daughters now know what to do. They press with a cotton wool pad until it stops bleeding.
I'm just wondering if this has anything to do with my B12 definicity or something else. I've a doc app. on Friday.
Yesterday, I fell asleep without knowing it so I'm just glad I had my B12 injection today.
I know this is not a blood disorder forum but I'm just wondering whether anyone else suffers like this and has any advice.
