I saw my Rheumy 2 weeks ago [ 6 monthly check ] whilst there he sent me for an x/ray re the awful pain in my left shoulder which he didn't think was my PMR. I'm waiting for the results.
The pain has been so bad it was keeping me awake at night, so had to take paracetamol which helped for a while,
In the meantime my recent B/Test showed that my B12 was getting low, but still within range. I have had problems before with low level B12 [ could be long term use of steroids ? ] but after taking B12 supplements the levels shot up from 226 to 2000. so the Dr. at that time said I no longer needed the B12. However I am now back on the B12 sublinguals [ started 5 days ago ] and guess what ? my shoulder pain has almost gone !
Coincidence, I wonder !!!!!
