I did a Micronutrient test and found out my B12 levels and Biotin were really really bad. my whole life i have thought there was something wrong with me i couldnt put my finger on. I am 32 and am just FINALLY finding some answers. I even thought I had ADD and was put on VYVANSE. If you have ever taken that you know it gives you alot of energy but for me even while taking that i felt like everyday was a marathon i had to push through for lack of energy. I have 2 toddlers so I do it. I force myself to get things done but i feel like i am fighting this intense exhastion inside me. So, I did 5 Methyl b12 injections 5 days in a row and now i am on them once a week for 12 weeks. on top of that i take a Thorne basic nutrients 2/day with an additional 600mcg methyl B-12 , 400mcg menthyfolate and 500 mcgs of biotin. Then even in addition to that i take a 10,000 mcg plain biotin and a liquid dropper of 2500mcg meythl B-12 with an extra 400 mcg methylfolate added into that.
The 5 days and 2 days after taking the shots with all of this i felt soooo much better!!!! I wasnt Tired, my back muscles used to hurt and be so tense that i would have to constant heat and get massages once a week, i would get winded easily, had memery problems ( hense the ADD) , get this weird tingling in my back, have weird bouts of constipation and IBS type symptoms, sometimes even in the middle of talking to people mid story my mind would go blank and i felt so akward. All of this was so much better in those 5 days and even two days after i stopped the shot for the week. The third day i noticed things slowly comming back even though the only thing I stopped was the shots. I was still taking all those other suppliments. The biggest thing i notice is the Severe tiredness I feel again every single day all day after 2 days of not taking the shots. Is this normal? Does anyone know orr did you exprerience the same thing? I was so happy that all these things i have lived with forever were getting better and its a very defeating feeling that they are coming back. I wasnt sure if it takes a while for your body to get regular, like maybe i will be on this rollercoaster of ups and downs until my body realises it will get b12 regualarly. Anyway, I am curious and very thankful for any insight anyone has on this.
P.s. I am so sorry for any misspelling. I know I spelled things wrong and thats how tiered i am. The thought of reading this over and correcting it seems exhasting. Today I get another shot and at least will have one once a week for 12 weeks so at least maybe i will have some more energy.
