  • Well done you! As you so rightly say,we are not just numbers and we have the right to expect our medical carers to react to us as such. If everyone had your courage to stand up properly to apathy we'd have a better world. All the best.

  • Well done. :-)

  • well done you , you have found that ALL the good help and empathy and advice on this --OUR-- site is invaluable and really does empower us to try to get the correct [ish] treatment ......way to go girl keep up keeping it up !!!!! .....alan xxx

  • I am glad you stuck to your guns. I think the injection costs around 60p - someone will correct if I'm wrong.

    I am also glad you are feeling so much better.

  • Mine won't even test me for b12

    Even although when I asked for d and ferritin I was deficient . I don't particularly want b12 injections but would be good to get to the bottom of aches and pains :)
