This is my first post, though I've been a member for a while. For the last 5 years my GP has administered 12 weekly injections , however last year I was called in to the surgery and told they had been directed to transfer all patients who's B12 readings were just slightly abnormal onto tablets!! I was dismayed but didn't know how to respond. My GP is a lovely woman but said....'well I just presumed you wouldn't want to be having injections for the rest of your life ' . My reply was ... surely that's the point, we do need them for life. Anyway because I'm not very forceful I agreed to go 6 months without then get my bloods checked. At the end of this period I was in a dreadful state, and lo and behold .... my bloods were in the normal range! ( my GP did give me an injection tho) I then did a further 8 months....bloods again...they say are normal and wouldn't treat someone with normal results. It is now a year since my last injection and I'm pretty much struggling on all levels with all symptoms. The most annoying is my pins and needles and aching joints. I push on through the fatigue, but that is now getting so bad my husband and family are pushing me to self inject ! Well my mum is a nurse so will do it for me! Sorry you have probably heard all this before....my main reason for posting is for help on ordering my stuff. I have in my basket at the German site 100x1ml individual injections. I presume if I also get single use syringes I can simply load that from the ampoules and inject ...like GP does? How often should I inject? I've noticed a huge variance with you all...some every day/ weekly / monthly.??
Thanks for listening and your advice....😌
