How long does it take to recover from a B12 deficiancy?
Hello. I was diagnosed with low Vitamin B12 (level 219) on September 21st and started weekly injections immediately after. While waiting for the injections, I started to feel even more sick (weak, dizzy, nauseas, muscle pains all over my body). I went and bought liquid Vitamin B12 and immediately, my symptoms improved but did not go away completely. Once I started the injections, I stopped the taking the liquid vitamin B, and the symptoms returned. I'm now scheduled to get my last injection today, and I started taking the liquid B, in a half doe, about three days ago.
I'm still feeling extremely week and fatigued. I'm no longer dizzy or struggling for the right words, but the feeling of fatigue and tremors has made it impossible to go into the office to work. And while this seems like a relatively short time (9/21 - 10/17), it feels like eternity to me because I just don't feel like myself or feel healthy.
I'm going to have other things checked out, some routine, some not, including a brain MRI (not typical) a women's check up (annual) and GI specialist visit (not typical). This is just really getting me down and I'm curious how other people have managed, and if they've had similar experiences as it relates to B12.
