I've been self-injecting for a few weeks, and I've been hanging on until I can really feel symptoms (spaciness and sometimes outright faintness, eye twitching and fatigue) returning. I reckon I can mostly stay on top of the symptoms if I inject every two to three days, but sometimes I'm getting bouts of lightheadedness which are quite scary. My IBS symptoms are quite bad at the moment (I've had IBS for at least 10 years, and my b12 deficiency was diagnosed just this summer). I'm taking folate and I've just added in a B-vit complex too. Any ideas?
My GP has reluctantly agreed to 8 weekly injections and has no idea I'm adding anything other than sublinguals. I'm due to see a gastroenterologist next week.
I work full time but I can't concentrate most of the time, and not at all when I'm really lightheaded. Are there any specific questions I should be asking the gastro, or should I be asking for a different referral? I'm a single mum - I'm way too busy to be unwell! Thanks for your thoughts x
