I currently receive injections from the doctor every 8 weeks, which after reading on here I'm very lucky to get in the UK.. it would seem! However my symptoms start returning after 5/6 weeks.
I went to the doctor to discuss the possibility of increasing the frequency and she said she would have to do a blood test first. Now I'm worried that that could force my injections back up to 12 weekly as it was a previous GP surgery that set them at 8 weeks.
I first started having injections when I was 20/21 6 years ago and they were stopped after about a year once they'd done a blood test. It was the worst two years of my life after that I was so unwell with all symptoms you could think of and they tried to tell me it was in fact depression. When my injections were finally restarted 2/3 years ago, the doctor apologised for them ever being stopped. Nightmare!! I'm worried that the same thing will happen again now, even if I go in with all the guidelines and evidence.
I'm only 26 and feel about 86 most of the time!
Can anyone offer me any advice? I always seem to lose all confidence when I get in my appointment!
Also just for reference, I take Metformin for PCOS which obviously affects my b12 levels.
