hi fatigued,

yes, it's helped many on this board, but not me.

do a search found at top

type in B12 shots
medical
topic ; 2nd search if needed; show body text

any date
leave membership no. blank, hit send

you should get at least 12-20+ posts on this and replies on how folks copied; if it helped, etc.

good luck! [group hug]

I have used them regularly during the course of my treatment. For me, I only use them a few times a week (bec of a cost consideration).

They have always helped me, esp in regaining my energy and alertness.

Aside from the cost, there's been no downside.

I hope they work as well for your daughter.

I like mine, too. I also do one cc every day.

In addition to the pink urine (mine starts out red and gets pinker through the next 24 hours till the next shot)... I sometimes have a red spot at the injection site. Not painful, just Kool-Aid colored.

Experimenting with different areas and different angles has helped with the spots. My partner seems to have a better technique, and can give a shot that leaves no evidence behind!

Hope it helps.

Those shots help my neuropathy and fatigue tremendously. When I stop them my nerve pain is noticably worse then when I do them daily. I found relief after about 5 days of injecting 1 cc a day.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

How long? I did two months worth over three months, but can't afford it any more.

I'm real glad I got what I did.

If you feel sudden higher energy, it can mean your body was low in B12.

If you feel subtle energy, maybe your body is not low.

For Lyme patients the idea is that it can/could help heal some of the neurological damage.

"They say" it's best to take oral B-complex with it, 50 mg. (Check your multiple.)

Hey, I think I read somewhere that if you take B-12 injections, your other B vitamins will suffer, so you have to make sure to take a B multiple with it. Someone jump in here and correct me if this is not true. :-)

I have done these B injections twice during my treatment,..

Once for 1 year after cipro/levaquine nerve damage, and then again after flagyl nerve damage.

Both times it was a tremendous help.

Good luck with those. Don't be afraid. I don't believe you can take too much B.

I know shots are best, but I just can do any more needles into my thighs. Sublingual methyl B-12 from APEX seems to help me. It's with glycerine in a dropper

there may be others out there, but I find this has less additives.

I'll post link later. have to hunt for it. I got it from my ND
