Just finished my 6 loading doses of hydroxocobalamin injections and I can't say I feel much different. I think after the 4th/5th I was feeling slightly better, getting more done during the day. But I had my 6th on Friday and feel just as tired as usual.
After an hour after each injection I've felt absolutely exhausted and slept from between 2-4 hours in the afternoon then slept normally again at night.
The day after no. 4 and no.5 I got loads done and thought they may have been making me feel crap at first then taking 24hours to kick in.
But after no. 6 on Friday I had a 2 hour nap till about 9pm, then slept from 1am-11:30 (wouldn't normally go sleep that late, could have gone earlier but oh wanted to watch a film when he got in from working late.) 2 hour afternoon nap then slept last night 11-10:30 and woke up still feeling quite tired and dazed.
Does anyone else feel awful when you first have the injection?
I feel like I'm going back to when I was at my worst in terms of sleeping and fatigue my tremors the same, still looks like things are vibrating when I look at vertical lines (e.g. radiators, edges of door frames) still getting mild pins and needles in finger tips but don't seem to be sighing as much.
I've had the tremor as long as I can remember and pins and needles could just be posture so maybe not related anyway.
Am I just not giving them long enough to work or could it be something else? My b12 was 238 (140-250 insufficient) so not desperately low anyway x
