My husband has recently had his blood results back and I'm looking for some advice regarding his GPs suggested treatment regime.
He has a lot of symptoms which I believe relate to B12, but as he also has a brain tumour there may be some overlap. He is having very severe pain in his toes which he takes morphine to control. He spends most of his day with his feet raised, but when he puts them on the floor gets pins and needles and pain and has to keep lifting his feet to get any relief. He also seems to get muscle spasms in his legs. On top of this there's depression and greater confusion, but this could be tumour related.
His GP has prescribed Hydroxocobalamin 5x1mg (once a week for 5 weeks) and Stexerol-d3 25000u one every 2 weeks for 3 doses.
I'm a bit confused as I thought he would be on a greater dose of B12, and I'm looking for advice on whether to challenge his GP regarding the dose he has prescribed.
Thanks in advance.
