I was diagnosed with b12 deficiency in June. I had my 6 injections and all was fine for 8 weeks then one of the previous symptoms started to recur. I self medicated with tablets and a sub lingual spray which seemed to work as the symptom ceased. I had my booster several weeks ago. I read almost daily on this forum of members self medicating including injecting and wondered why this was necessary if they were:
1 receiving treatment.
2 if they weren't receiving treatment, why they would need to take so much more b12 serum than advised by medical practitioners
I had neurological symptoms and should have had injections every other day but only had them every three days; and every eight weeks but was only allowed to have them 12 weekly.
Should I continue to self medicate anyway or stop and see if the doctor's injection regime is working?
I am a bit confused as to how to proceed
