Right, so acute medical consultant wrote to GP 2 weeks ago to advise a course of b12 injections which is what I've wanted since the beginning of the year which is great. The letter hasn't arrived yet tho. My full spinal MRI cane back clear apart from some osteoarthritis in my neck which he claims could be responsible for my symptoms (nah) but he agreed to try b12. My initial bloods came back as 237 back in Feb, today saw gp who told me that my levels are now off the chart (over 2000) so no point in injections... I have been taking 15000 mcgs of Jarrow sublingual b12 a day for months and I am def getting better but so bloody slowly. He says it's not b12 as with levels at 2000 plus I should be cured but that he's not an expert. He said people with b12def see their symptoms disappear after one injection... I asked if even tho my levels are now high could it be possible that it will just take time to get better and repair damage he was all 'erm, no not really'. I said no way am I going to just go home and shut up about it all even if it's not b12 and he says he's going to wait to receive letter from consultant and then refer me to see a neurologist. What do you guys think? Should I just be patient and wait to see if I continue to heal? Should I cut down on expensive b12 supplements and just top up with one tab daily? Feeling lost again. Oh, and I'm trying to go gluten free.
Thanks in advance lovely people!
