I have been self injecting 1mg hydroxycobalamin. I went down the si route last July following the gradual onset of extreme tiredness/fatigue/unable to stay awake in the day. Also numerous neuro symptoms including inability to concentrate, slurring speech, unsteady gait, vertigo, anxiety, paranoia plus a whole load of other unpleasant symptoms. My gp gave me the usual loading doses, but just ignored my entreaties in respect of my neuro problems. After research on this site and others, we decided to si.
Started every other day in September and noticed big improvements, but then things plateaud for a while. At Christmas I went to daily shots and there were further significant improvements. I know that as I have a very physically active and mentally stressful job I probably burn up my b12 like it's going out of fashion. About a month ago I felt ready to try every other day again. After 4 weeks of that I have had to go back to daily shots as I was definitely regressing. My mental capacity had fallen and I was slowing down physically too. No back on daily shots and much improved again. My question is how long do others have to self inject at this rate for? Are others out there having to si at this rate? I shall just keep going as it seems to be working for me. I would like to find out whether I am alone in this or not.
I have been careful to make sure I eat lots of potassium rich foods and keep up with the other important vitamins too.
Many thanks to all who reply.,
