I was diagnosed by my Dr at the age of 18 with Pernicious Anemia after a long stent of Glandular Fever, then resulting in b12 deficiency. This deficiency causes me lack of concentration, tiredness and being really pale, they seem to be the most noticeable. I started having injections every 3 months standard practice in the UK, I noticeably started to drop off after around 2 and a half months my symptoms seemed to arise. This sounds odd but, I notice my injection starting to wear off when the symptoms come back but whenever I have anything sugary, I feel perfect for about 2/3 hours and then the drop after can literally cause me to just not want to move. Sugar, during my injection has no impact on me what so ever. So that’s a bit of background I have a few questions.
Firstly, does sugar have this impact on anyone else? Is it that noticeable during the end of your injection period?
Secondly, does the injection time seem to wear off quicker, dependant on if you’re working a lot or exhausting yourself? + Illness, if you are ill in the period does this reduce it?
Lastly, is having my injection earlier at say about a month and half detrimental or not encouraged atleast?
I ask these questions due to having my injection at the beginning of December and now starting to feel the drop off considerably. I am a Uni student and my busy period is all this time of year you see. I was diagnosed had my 6 injections etc but then moved surgeries due to Uni and now my main access is mainly to Nurse practitioners.
Thanks to anyone if they can help answer some of the questions )
