I want to try buying B12 and self injecting but believe you need the first injection done in a medical setting. How do you manage this if the gp will not agree at all to it? My B12 is always in the high 1200s although I don't take supplements, and my Folate came back high at over 25 when the top of the normal range wAS 20. I've tested neg for PA and as my hubby has PA I know that I'm not as ill as he was. I think I might have some absorption problems, but the gp flatly refuses to accept that anybody can. For thim it's PA or nothing.
My latest bloods show slightly high levels of PLT, MCH, MCV. I've been told these might indicare a B12 problem, but gp says they "aren't that high and can vary from month to month anyway". Anybody got any ideas because my head is going round in circles here lol.
I have severe fatigue and exhaustion, and spend most of my time on the couch. Diagnosed with ME 16 yrs ago and ACTH deficiency a year ago.
Is it possible to self inject just to see if it works, or is it too risky?
