: : My 60 year old mother has been diagnosed with pernicious anemia 2weeks ago. She has started the B12 shots, but feels' she may be experincing some side effects from the shots'ie. lightheaded,
: fainting spells, and extremly tired. Has anyone else with this condition felt likewise or are these symptons of the condition.
Sometimes when you start the shots, your body goes into overdrive to makes up the lost cells and the anemia is actually worse before it gets better. She should definitely consult her doctor.
