Hi all,

For several years now I have faced a daily battle to maintain reasonable energy levels and have become aware of an injection available to Crohns sufferers - does anyone know what this is and how do other sufferers manage their energy levels?

Kind regards,

David

    I get a B12 injection every 3 months. It really lifts my energy levels for 2 - 3 weeks but after that I'm exhausted all of the time. If there was another injection available to help with this I would love to hear about it.

      Yes, I had most of my intestines removed 2 years ago and since then I could sleep on a washing line. I'm permanently tired and find it hard to concentrate at times but when I have the B12 injection it gets me going for a few weeks, I wish the effects were longer lasting.

      My B12 levels were v low and I had to have a series of injections. They started out a couple of times a week, then weekly then monthly up to every 3 months. They really helped initially then after about 9wks I would b dead ony feet begging for another! Good luck
