I got my first injection last Tuesday. By Saturday, I realized that my feelings of complete exhaustion had lifted! I don't feel like running any marathon, but I made a real dinner for my daughter (she's 19 yrs) last night for the first time in months-I've been going home from work and going right to bed. Just doing that simple task, made feel so good.
Prior to this, I had tried the liquid B12, but didn't have any noticeable results.
Thanks! exactly the same for me...it took 4 days!! That zombie feeling from being tired has almost gone away. Isnt it great. My daughter is 19 months old and wish I did this a year ago!!!
Are you doing 1 cc weekly? or twice a month. I am curious to see how long it lasts. i bought my own vial on the internet and my neighbor showed me how to inject it. But I really rather not do it myself...shes a nurse and made it seem so simple.
i am glad you mentioned the drops...it seemed so much easier to do that but I want to keep doing the injections
Are you deficient in B12 or just tired from working and life??
You know, I didn't ask how much they were giving me! My dr. has me going once a week for 4 weeks and then try once a month. Working full time does wear me out, but my B12 is also low. But I really don't think I could inject it myself. Because it is only a "Nurse" visit, I shouldn't have to pay a co-pay for the visit and the insurance picks up the cost of the injection. I remember having to push myself though the day when my kids were small - The pain and fatigue was unbearable at times. I hope you have some support so that you can rest.
I am starting Savella this weekend. I am really excited. I had stop my Effexor first, which is not fun. I'll let you know how that works. I have great hopes.
