I know what you mean about drs not making a big deal out of anemia. When my hemoglobin drops, I feel so rotten - to me it's worse than having the flu.

The big deal, I think is that you have the potential to be feeling sooo much better. Once you get things back to where they should be, you will be amazed.

Just for you reference, once you start the B12 injections, it does take a few weeks up to a couple of months to start seeing an improvement, and it's like one step forward, one back. Your may feel better, then worse as your body repairs the damage, so don't get discouraged. Figuring out you have the deficiency is sometimes a huge challenge by itself. Now you've gotten that hurdle down, you're bound to be on the road to recovery.

I've also read on this board that it's important to eat bananas/foods with potassium while your body is repairing - that your body uses more potassium when it gets the B12 so it goes into repair mode.

I get the B12 injections, but I also use the sublingual B12 and take a B complex so my B's don't get out of balance.

Hope you feel better soon!
