Hi there,just looking for some answers as I'm new here and new to the world of b12 deficiency,lucky as I am I also have vit d deficiency too so I'm still getting to grips with all of this! This site seems like a gold mine of info so here goes...Docs told me ten years ago and after any subsequent bloods that I have "large red blood cells" but always told not to worry its "simply the way I am" recently went to the doc with the feeling I was a hypochondriac....tiredness,apathy,poor concentration,poor memory,feeling hungover etc,all things that I have now realised I had got used to and had been putting down to being lazy,getting older(47!) etc and really wishing I had gone sooner now! I'm having injections(hydrox) every two days for six jabs then apparently it will be hopefully 3 monthly unless I need them more frequently. The nurse seems to think its unusual to feel worse after an injection but I've now had 3 and the last one totally floored me,could barely move yesterday,slept nearly all day afterwards and the sighing and aching everywhere was terrible! Also noticed areas of skin which look completely normal yet feel like I have sunburn...randomly! Having fourth jab tomorrow and dreading how I'll feel afterwards as yesterday's was the worst so far and I've not got over that one yet! I'm also taking folic acid supplements from the doc and vit d supplements too.....really interested to hear from anyone who has experienced similar and can maybe help by telling me there's light at the end of the tunnel... Thanks all
