    Default Vitamin B problems

    So tired all the time, and even though i'm taking the B-12 shots all the blood test show very low b-12 in me. My body has just stopped making it for me and I'm concerned that I'm not absorbing any Vitamin B that I do take. Does anyone else have this problem or should I be pressuring my doctor to find an answer?

    I do. When I am really low, my GP will have me have a weeklly shot of B12, then go back to my monthly B12. Seems to work pretty well so far.

    I had pins and needles in my fingers and toes, and only had a borderline low B12. That cleared up on a sublingual B12. If your problem isn't going away, I'd definitely push your doc. There's this thing called Pernicious Anemia which is anemia with low B12 rather than iron. I don't know all the consequences of low B12 but it's not a good thing! I hope your doctor will be helpful
