    Does Sublingual B-12 help any of you? I use it, but not sure it's really doing anything for me.

    What's your opinion?

    time to time, but I can't say I notice any difference. Maybe we need to take them on a regular schedule to get results?

    Maybe someone else knows...

    But my dr just told me that my B levels were still too low, so I needed to double the dose.

    Maybe I'll double mine too. I'm going to the Dr. Today and ask for injections. I know it can't hurt me.

    Hi, I also take sublingual but not sure if it works. I did however read sometime ago I believe it was Dr. Mercola who said he makes his own b12 cream. He buys some b12 tablets and adds dmso and lets them dissolve. then he just rubs it in to his skin. I think there are some more steps but I can't remember. His web site probably has it. It's worth a try. I'm thinking about this. Jess

    Well, just went to my Doctor today and asked him if I could get the injections whenever I wanted, he said "no problem".

    I told him I'd been reading again and smiled, so did he.

    He's pretty cool..

    I do feel a slight bit more energetic this evening. I'll let you all know if it works any better than the pills.

    Can any MD test for B levels and interpret the test correctly or do I need to get a specialist? If a specialist, where do I find one?

    i get a b-12 injection once a month, really didn't notice a big difference. until i missed a month. My doctor said b-12 tablets, do not get absorb in our bodies like they should. i know that i still don't have alot of energy, but when i didn't get the shot, i was down in bed for weeks, could not get moving, ask your doctor if you have a b-12 dificiency, i do have a severe dificiency. that is why i have to get the shots. it can be tested in blood work
    hope this helps

    I was blessed to have a doctor read the info I gave her from this site that says a lot of Fibro people are low in b-12 but it didn't show in reg testing. It showed up in testing the spinal fluid. She tested me for the b-12 with the reg test and it showed I wasn't low in the b-12. She gave it to me anyway. She told me if I needed it I would notice and if not it wouldn't hurt me. So long story short I take b-12 every other week. When I miss it a few times I notice I do not sleep as well. It also seems to help with my heart racing. Doctor said maybe my heart races do to a lack of good sleep and my body is over tired, over working the heart. Wish I still had her for a doctor.

    My new doctor gave me the b-12 because I was already getting it but he did say that the test for b-12 wasn't very good. So maybe I am low but the test didn't show that.

    I sometimes will save a shot if I have a big day ahead of me. I read it will peak about 12 hrs after taking the shot. So dh will give me mine at bed time so it will be working for me the most when I need it.

    This is all good information. I appreciate the posts.

    Chocolat---I'm going to get some B-50 and try it. I've been having a terrible time with fatigue this month.

    The shot did seem to help me feel a bit better.

    Everyone*** Ask your doctors to give you the shots. They won't hurt you. Your body will use what's needed and disguard the rest.

    I asked my Doctor to let me get one whenever I wanted. He said "no problem". I told him I'd been reading again and he smiled.

    Yes, any doctor can test for the B-12, but the tests don't always give an accurate reading.

    Just ask your doctor if you can try it for awhile. Go once a week or every other week for about 10 shots, then reduce down to once a month.

    I read this somewhere (read so much lately I can't remember where)

    It's worth a try.
