Hi all, an update on self injecting--
Posted before on my abortive attempts to get our various doctors to test or trial before trying self injecting in December. My husbands severe neuropathy (feet) is much improved--pain completely gone, but still numb. His mood is unbelievably better. Diagnosed with pretty significant ptsd. Now cheerful, joking again, going out into crowds (movies!), not reacting to noise, helping the grandkids with homework-- just such an improvement! Up and doing chores, helping around the house. Lost some weight. Finally got him prescribed hydroxycobalamin--injecting 1000 mcg every other day. Have continued my research and finding other vets exposed to dioxins with the same symptoms. So adding toxins to his complement of genetic errors as possible causes, not that I have any hope of convincing his doctors. Maybe if his labs improve they'll start listening.
The numbness and tingling in my feet is completely gone tho my hand is still bothering me. The cold in my hands and feet is gone, in fact I can't wear socks to bed anymore--too warm! When I got the loading shots in the hospital--hydroxycobalamin--I had a much bigger response than I'm having with the cyanocobalamin I'm getting from Canada, but have ordered from versandpo so hopeful about attacking the rest of my symptoms.
