Has any one on here had side effects from B12 tablets if so what were they, I am 71 have widespread osteoarthritis and IBS amongst other problems . I was diagnosed with mild Fibromyalgia in June. I do not have to see the rheumatolgist again. I am on no medication for Fibro but the consultant has suggested Amitriptyline, Duloxetine or Pregabalin if symptoms worsen. I am loathe to take these types of tablets hearing what others have said about side effects. Also I have glaucoma and I know Amitriptyline can raise pressure.I have been told by eye hospital that steroids and amitriptyline and best avoided unless absolutely necessary. I just take paracetamol and occasional ibrprofen gel not really supposed to use the gel . My main problems at the moment are shoulder and neck pain and headaches. I do have neck arthritis which may be the cause and also as it is the allergy season and I have allergic rhintis this might be the cause of the headaches. So hard to know what is causing what and how to treat, but pain is pain regardless of the cause. Does Fibro cause neck and shoulder pain as well and also headaches. Once again have always been a headache sufferers tension and migraines but don't get migraines very often these days. Sorry I have gone off my original question about B12 so to sum up anyone had B12 side effects and could other symptoms I have mentioned be Fibromylgia. Also your experiences of the 3 drugs I have listed. Many thanks.
