i am amused at this so thought i would share
I went to the doctor after suffering from a pain in the buttock for about 6 months, id spent so much time fighting to get my injections that the less important stuff went by the wayside.
I also have a large stash of b12 injections at home but had got to a point where i was too scared to take it.
anyway for the buttock pain, the doctor put me on strong anti-inflammatory tablets and PPI medicine for the stomach and told me to take it for a month, thought it was sciatica, and if the problem is still there at the end he would refer me to a muscular doctor.
after the month the pain was still there, i had also developed dumbness and wierd stuff but this deep pain in my buttock was bad again.
i decided to self inject again every other day to see if that helped, whoopie doo 2 weeks later and the pain has gone from every where. numbness has all but disappeared.
The GP knows im PA neg b12 deficient and is treating me for it but will still dish out stomach harming medication and lead me up the garden path.
