I have just received a letter informing me that it has been decided by the practice that, because I self-inject, my NHS B12 injections will be stopped, unless I discontinue.
This is because they believe that
- buying medication online can be dangerous
-self-administration can be dangerous
-taking B12 at this frequency (every other day) is not recommended
(I saw the GP who wrote this letter once recently - he is not my usual GP - however the decision was made at a meeting )
I have been self-injecting at this frequency for two years now and genuinely believe that gradually I have been able to manage my symptoms in a way that was not possible on any NHS regime that I had been given previously.
I thought that I was finally getting somewhere and have been entirely honest with this practice throughout what has been a long ordeal.
I have an appointment already booked, with my usual GP, for next week.
Quite what to do next escapes me right now. Any suggestions regarding how to approach this ?
I do not have a Pernicious Anaemia diagnosis.
