Hi, Would anyone know if I can "insist" on having B12 injections at my GP Clinic? (Not that I'm the bossy type lol) but I've just been prescribed Levothyroxin for "Boarderline" hypothyroidism ( doc thinks it might help symptoms I've had for the last 3 yrs !! especially the last 3 months since Op) my iron & Vit d are low, doc prescribed supplements for those, but my B12 is 200 ng/L, I did mention I was concerned about this as I understand that being insurficient can cause nerve pain which I've suffered with mainly in hands for the last 3 yrs & now had 6 Operations for in the last 2, to no avail but in fact the 2 GP's (1 in November) I've approached re b12 have not seemed concerned. I'm having another blood test in 4 weeks or so by which time the above Vits should have kicked in, if my b12 is still low & I still have symptoms then surely some Doctor somewhere amongst all my visits can do something? Another concern is when I've tried the b12 Spray & various other supplements i.e, cherry juice, flavoured protein drinks, krill oil caps & red clover to name a few, I've had terrible flare ups, could this happen with b12 injections? Many thanks
