    I got my first B12 injection today. I will be getting 1 shot/wk for 8 weeks, according to Dr. Teitalbaum's book. How long will it take till I notice a change?

    Anyone who's had the shots know?

    Good luck with the B12. My specialist wrote an article on it. She says normal range in the body is between 93-730 pmol/L but it needs to be around 2000pml/L in people with cfs to feel any benefit from it. It doesn't stay in the body long, hence the weekly injections to start off with.

    My blood tests showed 683pmol/L so she felt I might benifit from the injections, she said 50% of her patients respond well to it, some having to inject themselves every 3-4 days, others monthly.

    I got really sick while on my coarse of the injections and only lasted 6 weeks, i just got too sick. But I could have just been going into a flare anyway. My doctor wants me to try it again and I probably will down the track. Just a little gun shy at the moment!

    Hope this works for you as it seems to help alot of people.
