    This is wonderful news. It may be slow progress but it’s progress!
    More thorough investigation and more frequent injections would be most welcome

      Totally agree I’ve been struggling for 6 days now don’t get injection until in morning I’m exhausted can’t function sleeping dizzy breathless pins needles in hands on waking sometimes I even have difficulty getting in dr to receive my injection on time I feel I need it so much sooner than the nice guidelines of 12 weeks

      • Susan

    I agree with Debra. It is good news that at last there is the urge for more
    research on PA from a body such as NICE. A different approach to treatment would help e.g. use of patches. Thanks to Martyn Hooper for all
    the work he is doing to help us.

    I live in Canada and now I buy and use (daily) Jamieson Fast Dissolving Strips. These are 1,000 mcg . This is after being scolded by a nasty nurse in my doctor’s office and years and years of B12 shots. I’ve been using these now for 3 months and feel great!

  4. Suzanne

    My doctor verbally abused & swore at me before announcing to every person in surgery that I was never allowed to see him again & to take him off being my Dr all because I asked for more frequent shots as my paralysis,nerve damage etc is extremely severe.He called BS on all my symptoms & said they have nothing to do with PA.This is shocking treatment for a person who is supposed to care for people.He acted disgustingly & I am shattered & in need of a shot
