I'm about 6 weeks into daily subQ injections and have seen great improvement. Two of the worrying neuro symptoms - balance and muscle strength - were among the first to improve and even completely resolved. But now the last 2 days i've been stressed at work, working very late, and having some issues with hormone meds leading to physical stress... And possibly as a result of these stressors, my balance seems to have gotten worse - swaying again when walking in the dark to the bathroom, knocking into doors, dropping or knocking over things, etc.
Is it normal to revert like that in the beginning stages? Something to do with stress depleting b12? I do notice that the few times i tried to skip an injection, by evening time i was again losing my balance and getting clumsy.
Maybe those are my 'markers' indicating sufficient therapy?
Eventually i hope i dont have to inject daily, but until i get to the "symptoms stop improving " phase and start injecting less frequently, i guess it's normal for even small things to cause symptoms to come back? (Should add clarity of writing to thst list LOL!).
I hope this isn't a stupid question.
Part of my concern is that if these issues (reappearance of symptoms) aren't b12 related , i shouldn't wait too long to see a neurologist (which i haven't so far)!
