I have ME/CFS, fibromyalgia and am hypothyroid (for which I've recently been self-prescribing T3 - in addition to the T4 from my GP - and have seen a great improvement).
I'd like to improve on my Ferritin and B12 levels below (bloods taken in June) as I am truly struggling with a whole host of B12 deficiency issues and need to improve my problems with cognitive impairment. It's frightening how badly my brain's functioning.
I've been taking Ferrous Fumerate since this June blood test was done, and also oral B12 supplements. The iron seems to be helping, but Unfortunately I don't think the B12 tabs are doing anything - this to me is the area that needs addressing, particularly given my B12-deficient symptoms!
Since I've gone off-piste with self-prescribing the T3 with fantastic results, I feel braver about sourcing B12 administrators without the knowledge of my GP, and even potentially self-injecting B12 if necessary.
Where in the Brighton area can I find someone to prescribe and administer regular B12 shots?
And/ or -
How do I go about sourcing the right kit (B12 and injection kit) online? How much B12 do I take and in what form?
Can I teach myself how to inject with the help of YouTube etc or do I need a nurse?
Many thanks for your patience - I'm sure you've all heard requests like this a thousand times, but I'm new to this particular group on here
