Well, according to the questionnaire, and having spoken to the man himself, Dr C, from this site: b12d.org/ , I am now about to try the B12 injections. God and all the saints and the spirits of all my beloved furry, four-legged (or so) persons passed on help me!
The neuro rehab consultant very sweetly and kindly and unhesitatingly told me, in sugared terminology, to eff off with regards to more than once a month for 3 months. What is it with these f... er, these doctors? Why do they think they are the fonts of all knowledge when what they know is merely the tip of the iceberg? They spend years and years and years looking at a grain of sand and think they comprehend the beach in all its glory. One of these days I'm going to blow. Good style.
So the GP, who smiles with cold teeth, sitting there in her iron knickers, travelling at speed down her narrow tramlines of knowledge, will be prepared to do as the neuro-rehab-sugar-mouthed-dickhead says, deaf to all but the entrenched and arrogant ignorance of her equally iron-pantied, anally-clenched cohort. I HATE THEM!
Sorry for shouting.
Virtually all the symptoms of B12 deficiency cross over with ME, (which I now learn is distinct from …) CFS (which is a bucket diagnosis for ‘can’t be arsed to read the symptoms and make a proper diagnosis – must be neurosis because I, Medical God, cannot be wrong’) and hypothyroidism/insufficiently prescribed thyroxine/wrong effing thyroxine prescribed in the first place/syndrome.
So, once I get the B12 under control, and remain on the LDN (by the way, I've dropped back down to 3.5mg a day – I really am a wee thing beneath the blubber) then I can turn my attention back to … T3. Again.
Rant cycle over. Question cycle beginning…
Can anyone tell me where to get very fine very short-needled insulin syringes from, please? (8mm in length will do nicely). Have asked on PAS but am trying to double my opportunities for replies!
