After the usual argy-bargy I got my GP to agree to follow the guidelines and give alt-day injections until symptoms are gone (or at least as gone as they can be). Been on them for three weeks now - mentally, vastly improved, tiredness improved and possibly, just possibly, a minor improvement to numbness in my feet (okay just one foot so far!). I know that it will take a long time and would like to continue the injections (Hydroxo) but ....
I am going to South Africa and Namibia for two months at the end of March. I could, in theory, self inject there but I really don't want to start self-injecting for the first time miles away from medical care (I realise risks are minimal). I don't want to face the possibility of customs finding 30+ needles and 30 vials of "drugs" for which I won't have a prescription and the daytime temps are likely to be pretty high for storage. So I need a temporary alternative.
Any suggestions on what would be best? Sublingual? Nasal spray? Nasal drops? Hydroxo? Methyl? Dosage?
I realise that there may be many opinions but, hopefully, a few experiences will let me sift through and work something out.
