This was my appointment after my loading doses and blood tests. Well I expect you can all guess how it went! I told my GP that I still had numbness and tingling. He told me that it was unlikely to be related to the b12 deficiency as my levels were now up following the loading doses and that it was unlikely I would have symptoms from b12 deficiency as I was not anaemic. He then double checked what my calcium levels were to see if maybe that was causing it but they were fine. He showed me the results from the ifa test which was 2.6 with a range of 0-6. So no obvious reason for low b12. He suggested 3 monthly injections going forward. When I tried to discuss this he told me that last year the surgery did an audit and at least half of everyone on b12 injections were trialled on tablets and they have managed to keep their b12 levels up on tablets. Get the impression they are anti injection! I did not have my print outs with my me as was off work with a migraine on Monday and all my prep was there!
Needless to say I am not satisfied with 3 monthly injections and now plan to self inject. Using info from previous posts I have ordered everything I need. I now need to overcome my needle phobia!
