B12 difficiency still a problem

By Alexa

Yeah, what to say..? I’ve been diagnosed with a B12 difficiency since October 2014 and things don’t seem to improve by a lot…

Normally when someone is diagnosed with a B12 difficency, they will recieve 2 suppleting injections a week for 5 to 6 weeks (I’ve had those)/ After that the injections will become less regular, and normally will be monthly for half a year, and after that once every 2 or 3 months (in most cases the rest of the patients life).

As usual, with me things go quite an other way than ‘normal’. For the last 3 years I’ve had my B12 shots every other week, until late July this year. My doctor went on holiday, I’ve been busy painting my house and that’s when I first had my B12 shot after 3 1/2 weeks. I felt still good at the time and decided to give it a shot (yes, pun intended) to get my B12 once every 3 weeks.

Sadly though, the last 2 shots I’ve had on my 3rd week I suffered from severe fatigue again and the cluster-alike headaches I used to have came up again 🙁 It’s clear that my tripple psychological ‘handicap’ uses up a lot of B12 in only 2 weeks and I’m back on a B12 shot every other week again…
