Re: B12 shots??
Oct 28, 2005
I have been anemic most of my adult life. During the past year or so my ice cravings had gotten so severe from the anemia that I was going through 7 pound bags of ice every 2 days or so (this was just in the evening not counting my time at work). I get my blood drawn every 6 months or so because I am a weight loss surgery patient and the last time they noticed my iron and B12 were very low. I finally just got around to getting a B12 injection a couple weeks ago and I could tell a difference within a couple days! My ice eating has gone down from 7 pounds every 2 days to only 1 cup a day or so and my energy seems to be up and my insomnia down. I was also having extreme muscle aches which i thought was from Fibromyalgia but it turns out that I think much of it was the B12 deficiency. My doctors said that B12 shots cannot hurt anyone (can't get too much B12) so with that said and my own experience I would say it is worth a shot for anyone.

Good luck,
