I was diagnosed with B12d in July2016. Doctor gave me 5 loading injections and then said he would test my blood in 6 months. So after reading here and taking advice from another charity I decided to self inject and take all the co factors. So of course I won't be going back for the next blood test. My symptoms were many including extreme pain in legs and also arms to the point where walking is very painful. Since then I have also seen a rheumatologist who ordered nerve conduction tests and a MRI. The results are now back and unfortunately show damage to a couple of discs in my back and spinal stenosis. There have been a few improvements since si. My hair has thickened a bit and my appetite is back, the dry eyes are a bit better along with the spots in my vision, pain in the gall bladder region has gone and I feel a bit less exhausted. However the pain is as bad and is debilitating. I can't decide now whether to reduce the B12 injections as it seems toe problems in my spine and the pain may be nothing to do with B12d. Does anyone have any thoughts?
