Well after receiving my Ampoules from Germany and needles and syringes from Medisave last night was my first attempt at self injecting with the help of my husband. We watched a video of an NHS GP of how to self inject into thigh during this pandemic. All looked very straight forward.
My husband broke ampoule and cut his hand and I pricked my finger when opening and attaching needle! We used green needle to draw up Hydrohydroxocobalamin and blue to inject into thigh muscle. Shaky start, but will now do loading doses then monthly. I have neuro symptoms, i.e. tingling and tinnitus. This was an incidental find last year prior to my annual colonoscopy, my levels were 148, then by January 450. Wow what an improvement in my overall health, physical and mental. I am a young fit 52 year old (well was....)
Q. Do I keep ampoules at room temp?
Q. I have read to take 5mg Folic acid with injections, GP never mentioned this?
Q. I have a sharps bin, but council need GP letter, which I do not have as arranged my injections myself.
my PA test came back normal, but I am told that you should be guided by symptoms as the test is only 60% accurate and quite flawed!
Is there a protocol to follow that I could save and print for reference?
What a great support, Thank you
