If people havnt read my previous post basically I had a hair strand tested for intolerances privately and this showed I was lacking B12 (amongst others Vit D and magnesium) and when I mentioned this to my doctor she sent me for a B12 blood test. My result was 206 (range 200 to 800) and was classed as normal but after doing my research I have a lot of the symptoms and now believe I have been wrongly diagnosed with depression. I wrote a letter to my GP prior to my appointment today raising my concerns about my B12 being low and causing all the symptoms I was displaying. She has agreed today to give me a 3 injections per week for 2 weeks and then I have to wait a month before making an appointment to see her again and discus if there has been any improvement before she will agree to 1 injection every 3 months. I feel so relieved as I really feel this should improve my quality of life dramatically but she has made it clear she does not agree that low B12 is the cause (although not offering any other suggestions, I think she would say some are caused by my depression and worries I refuse to accept the diagnosis of depression) and has only agreed to a trial because it is inexpensive and will not do me any physical harm but she made it clear she is concerned for my mental health if this does not improve my symptoms.
Although I have won the battle I have not yet won the war...
Can anybody tell me how soon after starting the loading dose they started to feel any improvement?
