Hello fruity friends!! :)
I found out my B12 was dangerously low, so got injected.
I do feel better and I only got it done yesterday.
The doc prescribed me a tablet that has cyanocobalamin which I know isn't good.
I looked around at the health food store and sublingual ones all had lactose! to name but one gross ingredient.
Anyone have experience buying them online? I live in Canada. Also which brand?
My cash is too tight to afford the shots...
Any help greatly appreciated :)
You might try this one: Jarrow Formulas Methyl B12
I tried searching label info on google but couldn't find it.
Would you mind sharing what all the ingredients are? :)
ah thank you :)
Have you noticed a difference since taking it?
my b12 levels were 182pg/ml. so after MUCH persuasion, the doctors gave me one injection a week for 3 weeks. the injections made all my symptoms massively improve, but would only last about a day, so I started sublinguals a few days after the first jab. I started with 1mg jarrow methyl b12, then within few days worked up to 5mg Jarrow methyl b12, then 10mg Jarrow methyl b12 a day. After 3 weeks of jabs and sublinguals together my levels are >2000. I know the jarrow methyl b12 sublinguals work coz i felt huge relief immediately after. they have great reviews on amazon for getting ppls numbers up even without jabs. so yeh i would recommend them. Now i am almost completely symptom free after 3 wks. I had really bad symptoms before... was almost bed ridden in the end, severe heart palps, short breath, confusion, exhaustion, sugar and temperature regulation screwed, and so much more. even immediately after my first jab i felt cured lol..... cant believe i suffered so long with it...thought was my adrenals.
Nice one! Feels great to find a solution doesn't it? :)
testing your total B12 after you've started supplementing doesn't really tell you much, your values will be high but most of it will not be in the 'active' form and will end up being excreted. Only MMA, homocysteine, & holoTC tests are really worth doing whilst you're supplementing.
Yeh soooooo pleased! :D
Oh thanks i didnt know that...VERY good to know. i suspected i still needed a high dosage for a while...so the plan was to continue until my symptoms have completely gone then drop to a maintenance dose of 1000mg/day. now i feel more sure i am doing the right thing, thanks
I felt like I was dying!!! And thought I was allergic to all my fruit because I even started getting mouth ulcers, feel asthmatic, exhausted, numbness, tingling, etc.
I'm ordering ASAP.
I'm glad you're feeling better.
me too! i honestly stil cant believe the solution was that simple lol....hope it is for u too. def all sounds like b12 symptoms. i also had problems eating fruit, difficulty breathing and exhaustion. didnt get any numbness or tingling though luckily, but i know they are classic b12 symptoms.
well i felt better immediately and symptoms improved really fast, so yeh get ordering :)
message me along the way Ardilla if i can help in any way :)
