Hello there I am booked in to have my first B12 shot tomorrow as I believe I am B12 deficient. My reading is 282 and I have pins and needles in my left foot, dizziness, eyesight issues and generally feeling not real. I really believe I need medication fast. Have had extensive tests including MRI, brain scan etc and nothing comes up hence my current theory of B12 deficiency (I'm vegan) The problem I have is that I have had serious side effects to Gynest Cream (contains Benzoic Acid) and Beconase Nasal Spray and believe its probably the preservative. These include tongue numbness, confusion, blurred vision, dizziness. I am very worried that I could suffer an allergic reaction to the Benzyl Alcohol in the B12 shots. Is it possible to have a B12 shot without such an ingredient? Is the only alternative oral supplements which I fear will not be strong enough for me given my current symptoms. I really dont know what to do. Many many thanks Tracey
