Should I try a B12 spray?

Hello everyone.

I have been bobbing around on different forums in an attempt to figure out what is going on. I went to my GP about back pain, joint pain and a few other symptoms and have had various blood tests and an MRI scan.

No closer to finding out what is up with my back, but through various forums, it has been suggested that I may have rheumatoid arthritis (negative blood test), Coeliac disease (negative blood test) or vitamin D or B12 deficiency (vit D level was 39 earlier this year, B12 was 258 a month or so ago, and ferritin/iron stores were 10.6).

My symptoms include joint pain, visual disturbances, IBS, lightheadedness, clumsiness/wobbly on feet, infertility/recurrent miscarriages.

I am tempted to try a B12 mouth spray (have recently started a vitamin D spray to see if it makes a difference) as my GP is referring me for nerve tests (he suspects the joint pains could be carpal tunnel) and physiotherapy for my back. No other blood tests or treatment planned, so I guess I need to do something myself, hence me thinking about the B12 spray.

Any advice, please?

I'd probably hold off for a while until all the referfals have been done inc ase anyone wants to do some supplementary tests around B12 deficiency as supplementing may distort the results.

Try NuU vitamin B12 capsules. CTS is attributed to low B12.


Thanks all. Will wait until after appointment next week, although I am guessing it will be a few weeks until I get the results back.
