Well after months of being fobbed off and a referral to haematology that never actually happened and a pretty blunt letter to the GP on Friday telling her that I needed intramuscular treatment I got my 1st loading dose at my appointment tonight!
I expected a bit of a firework moment but all I got was a sore arm and now feel absolutely wiped out and as if I've drank a few shots of vodka!! Is this normal?
I have 5 more loading doses lined up then she says they will be 3 monthly so there is my next battle!
She also prescribed folate 5mg daily (last folate level on 13/11 was 3.2 range 3.3 upwards) and said she will retest that along with ferritin in a month (ferritin on 11/10 was 14.7 range 13-300) does this all sound about right?
She acknowledged that she expects my b12 to shoot up so won't take any notice of that but will see how I'm feeling. Nurse who administered the jab says it will take me a while to feel better
