Re: Response to first B12 shot
I felt wonderful after my first dose. I don't really remember feeling anything but MORE tired. I have severe PA. Technically, I have Putnam-Dana Syndrome. (AKA- Subacute Degernation of the Spinal Cord Secondary to Pernicious Anemia) My doctor told me that it might make me tired, because my body was going to be working hard to 'repair' itself. I honestly, felt MORE tired for about the first month straight.
That has since subsided.
Oh, yeah, I also got the weird yellow poops. YUCKY, I know. Sorry. Didn't know if anyone else had that happen to them!!
I'm still trying to figure out what else is wrong with me. We really thought that the B-12 was going to take care of all my crazy, horrible symptoms/problems. Alas, it hasn't. I still can't swallow solid food and my vision is weird. I have tons of pain in my muscles, joints and tendons. I have super dry skin, hair and eyes. I still struggle with fatigue. I've been working out for the first time in years (I was too sick to work out) and all that's happened, is I've GAINED 30 pounds. (Yes, I'm watching what I eat, too.) I've also started taking diet pills and I find that they make me feel even colder (I'm constantly cold.) and I still haven't lost a pound!!
