So I went to London today, for my 5th or maybe 6th Hydroxocobalamin shot, I have been suffering the worst headaches and dizzy spells for the past 2 weeks.
I Reported to my Dr 10 weeks ago, with symptoms of b12 deficiency.
Bloods came back 'normal'. Not P.A. apparently.
Booked to see a neurologist (privately as couldn't wait the 4 month waiting list)
He has referred me for a brain and spine scan (suspected SACD or myeloneuropathy) and 'recommended' on an empirical basis that my Dr administer b12 shots.
My Dr is currently refusing until they have had a multi-disciplinary meeting about it. so that's dragged it out until the new year now. Meanwhile I'm suffering all over christmas.
So, out of desperation, I have been going twice weekly to get hydroxocobalamin shots. However in the past 2 weeks, i have started feeling really dizzy and had a headache that just will not go away. I have taken ibuprofen, Anadin, Aspirin, and Paracetamol. And nothing has touched it. It doesn't even feel like a headache so much anymore. More like, you know when you have flu or a heavy cold and you go out into the cold without a hat on, and your head feels really tingly. Well, like that. I have also since I returned home, felt very nauseous. My feet are freezing cold, but sweating, and keep cramping.
I don't know whats happening but it doesn't feel good. I attended A&E out of desperation with these symptoms, (only not so bad) last week and they said there's nothing they can do for me. Only a neurologist can help me.
What am I going to do? My Dr's is closed now for 3 days. And i'm scared. I've felt very vague for the past couple of weeks also, and my vision blurs occasionally and I struggle to focus when trying to read anything.
I don't know i should be having methylcobalamin, or cyanocobalamin or what.
I hate my Doctor
