I'm in the US and just self-injected sub cutaneously 1 ml/day for 7 days. Now I'm supposed to inject 1ml/week for a month, and then once (1ml) every two weeks from then on.
While I haven't noticed a big difference in my fatigue levels, I'm trying to be patient. I have, however noticed some side effects, and I can't tell if I'm being a little hypochondriatic or if these are real side effects, so maybe you all can help. I've been getting quite acute and random spurts of nausea that may last for a few hours, but no longer (it isn't after I eat or anything like that). I also have small red squiggly lines that have appeared on my thighs, near where I self-inject. They look like they could be broken blood vessels, and I definitely did not have them a week ago. They don't hurt or anything but I'm concerned that they're there. Are those normal?
Lastly, I'm a bit worried about blood clotting--does anyone know anything about this? I know the amount of B12 I took seems more than many people on the forum (from the UK), and I read that blood clots could be a possibility. I have a hard bruised-feeling vein on the top of my hand that doesn't appear bruised, and has not gone away or improved.
Apologies if these are all rather silly, but my doctor hasn't been very helpful or supportive in what to expect with the injections or with PA itself, so I'm feeling very lost. Thanks for any help.
