I posted the other week about my loading dose and feeling unwell.
Quick cover of what’s happened.
I had covid in Jan. Felt unwell after. Exhausted. Shortness of breath. Tingling in feet and hands. Very occasionally chest pains. Was originally told long covid. But a blood test was done and low b12 and iron. Never told exact figures. But blamed it on covid as covid strips people of b12 the gp said.
Was giving the loading dose of 6 b12 injection every other day. Last dose 10th September. While I had the loading dose made me feel shakey and unwell.
Two days after loading dose ended up in a and e thinking I was having a heart attack. I wasn’t but felt awful. Felt jittery and anxious. When they did the blood test to check for other things told me my b12 was high. Again not sure what figures.
It’s now 4 weeks since loading dose. And still l don’t feel right. Having a bad day today.
Don’t feel exhausted. But still feel breathless and now new symptoms of chest pains, strong palpitations, and really anxious which I didn’t have before. Keep getting a burning sensation in one foot.
This has really put me off the b12.
Can anyone give me some reassurance. My gp isn’t interested in any of my post b12 symptoms.
Is what I’m feeling the body repairing itself?
From what I’ve read on here most feel better after b12. I wasn’t that ill before the b12 other than being tired.
I feel since the injections I’ve gone so downhill.
Is this normal?
