    i understand that i can not force my body to perform when it simply can't.

    however, i need something like a "last ressort" when i need to go to work but feel so bad. i am talking some vitamin pills but this is not enough to give me the kick i would need.

    hence my question: anybody tried vitamin shots (eg. B12) ?ยด

    What kind of tests are required before a doc actually agrees to give such shots?

    Again, i would not necessarily take it for long periods, just one or two times per week

    thanks,
    joe

    joe,

    my CFS doctor recommended few supplements and B12 shots. i started the shots last week. i feel it does give me a little boost of energy. normally doctors will draw blood to see what your B12 level is at. I've been told to do the shots 3 times a week. i wanted to try the B12 pills because i don't like sticking needles into myself but doctor said people like us have tough time absorbing the pill.
