RECAP: Dr. would not give me more than one shot per week for 4 weeks then put me on once per month because my b12 was only 240. He refused to give the loading dose for neurological symptoms as it couldn't be proven it wasn't from my type 1 diabetes I've had for 35 years (in perfect control) It was the folate he was more concerned about I think it was less than 1 or somewhere around that.
As I limped in to his office last Monday looking right out of a scene of the Walking Dead and not quite remembering which 4 medicines I was taking, I convinced him i needed the shots every 2 weeks and not every 4. I barely made it the 7 days for that injection.
It has been 10 days nwt and I am not sure I will make it another 4.
I am exhausted to the point where I never really wake up in the morning. I am confused and my eyes are heavy and they hurt. Today I almost feel asleep 4 times while driving it scared me to death. Then realized I also ran a stop sign, thank goodness there was no traffic. I could have been in a serious accident, hurt myself or worse, hurt someone else.
At 6:00 last night I fell asleep at my laptop without even eating dinner. I woke up at 11:00 and went to bed and slept until 6:00 am. I usually only sleep for 6 hours per night NOT 12!
Does anyone else experience exhaustion to this extreme? It's scary. I'm scared
