Hi, I've been vegan for a few years now.. I took b12 orally like a super long time ago (been at least a year). I noticed my energy had been dragging a ton even after a long night of rest so I decided to get a shot!!
Approx 30 seconds after the shot, I felt heavy and trip (like as if I was drunk) I sat down in the chair in the waiting area and everything looked all stained glass like. I told the nurse and the desk lady and they gave me water and told me to wait and chill until a felt better.
After like ten minutes, I feel a little better and I had to go because I was running late for work and still needed to pickup groceries, so I get up (and have my partner help me) and like when I go outside, everything turns all back and weird and I feel really heavy again and my partner has to like drunk girl carry me to the car. On the way to the store, I start feeling like a new person and now I feel super energize and pumped and happy!!
I was just wondering, is this a normal reaction? Or like an allergic reaction or anything?? Thanks!!
and the kind of B12 used in the shots was methyhlcobalamin :D
I faint (or almost) whenever I get a needle through my skin (or a cut for example), so maybe your reaction was not to the B12 but to the needle ?
nope, it's not normal. It's a vitamin and you can't OD on B12, so it might've been a stress factor or something else. I get stressed when I give blood, i feel a bit fainty the first seconds.
yeah it may have been the needle xD IDK! It was just so weird but I felt so amazing after tripping so like It was totes worth it! It was just such a great and weird experience all together
Sounds like you just really needed the b12. Get another soon.
