Re: Could it b-12
Jun 1, 2008
Thanx For Your Reply
Unfortunately My Hmo Lab Forgot To Include B12 With All The 15 Or More Blood Test My Nuerololgist Requested! The One That Was The Most Important, I Am Beyond Frustration. My Nuero-gave Me A Im Injection-without Knowledge That The Lab Hade Made This Mistake. He Then Would Not Treat Me Due To The Fact My Blood Counts Did Not Show Anemia. Unbelievable Since That "1 " Shot Was
An Incredible Success, Worthy Of Continued Therapy. I Talked My Pcp Into Another Shot 2 Wks Later But Did Not "feel It" Like Previous Shot, Therefore No Therapy. I Then Had Mri Brain-(dizziness-vertigo)-mri-spine, Ct Chest Abdomen-pelvis,complete Cardio-work-up,endo Dr Visit, Gynecologic Oncologist-(previous Cervical Cancer)& Radiation Oncologist. 2 Mos Later I Realize That None Of These Dr's Are Willing To Treat Out Of Their Specialty-sending Me Back To A Pcp That Insist That If I Eat Meat No B12 -deficiency- And I Should Try Alternative Medicine. I Have Made An Alternative Choice- Internal Med & Hematologist Dr's. I Stopped By My Old Hematolgist, He Gave Me A B-12 Shot- I "felt" It, He Said Once Your Dx With B-12 Def You Never Need To Prove It- It Is With You For Life. Meanwhile For The Last 2 Mos- I Have Had No B-12 Awaiting For My B-12 To Go Back Down, So We Can Re-test -per My Pcp. I Feel So Ignorant! Crap! I Hope My New Internal Medicine Dr. Knows What She Is Doing And Treats Me Instead Of My Labs.
