The B-12 sublingle tablets were maintaining the levels so I don't have to take shots. Are you also taking tablets along with the shots? Now that my levels are better I find that a slow walk not to far is helping to build up my energy. However, I would not walk alot especially right now when your levels are low as doing any energy uses B 12. When my was especially low I just rested and allowed my body time to heal itself.
Take care and let us know how things go for you.
Not sure if I am doing this right - but have read a few of these pages and would like to ask if anyone has had the same thing that I am from my GP?
B12 was tested twice and come back with a reading of 116.
I had to wait for 4 weeks to get an injection, but it hasn't seemed to have 'kicked' in.
I visited the GP again with 1 of my symptons sore throat, which I have had to varying degrees since May last year - swollen lymph glands - enlarged thyroid- thyroid cysts (got in a stage, crying etc as I can't explain how I feel) asking if the injections could be more frequent than 1 every 3 months. Instead I have been offered anti-depressents as the GP seem to imply that my symptoms are in my head and not the fact of feeling quite poorly sometimes gets me down.
I was also told that although 116 count is low, it isn't really that low as they work at the range of 200 being normal? So therefore the B12 deficiancy is not a problem.
Can anyone help as I am starting to doubt myself and think that it maybe me being daft??!!
