I began self injecting in October after loading injections did not improve the tingling and numbness. These were the only neurological symptoms I had and improved with the self injections. After a month the tingling returned and with some suggestions from this forum I believed it was due to too much supplementation with other vitamins/ minerals. I stopped them and the tingling again went away. 3 weeks ago the tingling returned along with a strange sensation in my left ear canal. I decided to go back to the GP (choosing a different gp this time!) to get some advice. She wants to check my b12 levels so had to admit to self injecting. She was ok with it and suggested I stop self injecting until I felt like I could not wait any longer and then get the blood test. She also suggested I have a free hearing test done. The test showed I have a mild hearing loss in both ears not consistent with my age(42). I have the strange sensation in both ears now. I am wondering if this is linked to my b12 issues. Is it likely that a new symptom appeared after I began injecting? Or could it be that I lost feeling in my ears and now it is returning I can feel it?
I worry that stopping the injecting even short term might impact on my hearing but am torn as would like to work with my GP to try and understand what is going on. Any input would be gratefully received x
