About a month before Christmas I got a blood test and it came back saying I had very low B12. I had already been taking cyanocobalamin tablets twice daily, as well as folic acid, for the previous 6 months, but I'm guessing it didn't work as well as they'd hoped.
I knew something was up, because I'd been sleeping for at least 11/12 hours a night plus an hour long nap during the day. My confusion had been at an all time high (forgetting names of TV programmes I've been watching for years, street names, random words etc) and my depression had started to resurface again.
They set me up for 3 injections twice a week for 2 weeks. I didn't really feel a difference in terms of physical health as I was still tired, getting dizzy and whatnot, but I returned 2 weeks later and got my blood taken again and when I went back for my results, they said my B12 levels were at 93.
So, here I am again, getting the injections 3x a week for 2 weeks, 1x a week for 4 weeks and 1x every 3 months. The injections don't seem to be helping (at least I don't think so) because my levels shouldn't have dropped that low within a few weeks.
Does anyone know what happens if I go back after these 10 injections and my levels are still really low?
