    I have anemia from missing Intrisnic factor due to ulcers and other belly problems, does anyone here get b-12 shots?
    Well I'll tell you at the end of a month after a shot I am worn down and tired, lazy even!
    But after I get that shot, I got one today, its like a huge hit of caffiene! I can't sit still.

    My doc told me today I got the second to last shot he had. Apparently there is a shortage of the b-12 shots. Pills and sub-lingual do not work with me, it has to be intramuscular. I wonder why there is a shortage!??! obummercare at work? What shortage is next for us young 50 somethings!

    I know little of B-12 but if you're anemic you might try cooking in cast iron only.
    Iron leaches into the food. May help some. Has others.

    After a perferated ulcer and a gastrectomy 40 years ago, I was told that as I got older I would need B-12 suplements. Pills were only partially effective, so now I'm on shots. I administer them myself with an insulin needle - 1ml IM of cyanocobalamin every 30 days.

    Good luck. I know how you feel.

    There are docs down here catering to women who'll do anything to lose weight. That's how they're pitching it in this area. They even are selling the shots on groupon. I know some women whose doc has them all hooked on them. I can't take the B-12 even in pill form, as it gets me too hyper.

    Pat, if they help so much, hope your doctor gets more in.

    He told me he is going around his middleman and is going to try to get it from the manufacturer, I don't know how that will work.

    Hyper ain't the word! I will be prowlin around till 3 or 4 in the morning, but the crash tomorrow sucks!
    But there are good movies on, I'm watching the new Judge Dredd right now!

    Being anemic is not the same as needing B12. You need a hematologist to check your anemia. If bad enough, get infusions.

    Normal B12 is (according to LabCorp) 213-816. And the closer you are to the lower end, the more likely you will have neurological issues. However, too much b^ also causes neurological issues...so supplement with just the B12 as you are doing. Keeping to the top end of normal B12 is best...

    Good luck, it is a balancing act.
