I was recently diagnosed with PA, and have had two injections (every 3 months) since my initial booster series of several injections.
With the booster series, I ended up feeling brilliant, energetic, the pins and needles went away, all was well. With the two injections since then, however, I have felt lethargic for about a week afterwards, and my energy levels haven't really improved. I also notice occasional slight chest pain, which I don't normally have (subsides after a few days). I'm noticing pins and needles again in my left foot, just a week after my last injection. A few things to note:
- I keep my B12 in the fridge - it is a dosage of 1mg Hydroxocobalamin every 3 months.
- I self-inject into shoulder muscle (I practised this with the nurse at my GP, and she said I was doing it right).
- I have a very busy lifestyle - I work in several different places over the course of the week, have commitments most evenings, cycle a lot, don't have a lot of downtime (however, I've arranged to do my injections on days when I can just crash afterwards).
Any thoughts / similar experiences?
