Comment:
I had the pain from shingles bad for months I could hardly function. Someone suggested vitamin b12 shots, that it had helped them. I decided to try it out and see if would help because I don't like pain pills and that was the only thing that helped. The vitamin b12 injections have helped me a lot. I will get one a week until I get rid of the nerve pain from the shingles.

My mother would get B-12 injections prior to being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. I wonder if she shouldn't have - that she might have ignored some side effects of this drug ... That it contributed to her ALS...

I recently picked up a bottle of B-12 which (in very small print) listed @10,000mcg \ I think it may have caused the nausea and vertigo that I am experiencing.
