B-12 update

It's been three weeks since my first B-12 injection and they seem to work. For a week. Then I spend a week DYING for my next one. I'm currently in the, "I WANT MY SHOT!" phase. It's not pretty.

But, even more interesting, I have a family history of B-12 deficiency called Pernicious Anemia which can pass through the generations. Even curiouser is the fact that hypothyroidism and Pernicious Anemia often go hand-in-hand. Hmmm. . . could it be?

I've yet to see blood work results, will see them next week at my appointment. They might be telling.

Right now debating whether I should give myself a third injection, or call my dr. and clear it with him first since it's only been 8 days since my last.
