    Just been diagnosed with Vitamin B12 deficiency after having had
    intermittent peripheral neuropathy problems - I have been booked for
    six vitamin B12 injections over two weeks.

    Can anybody tell me what these injections will be like?

    I used to have hem when I was a child, not much different to having a flu jab or similar. But unlike having flu jab that leaves my arm sore, the B12 injections didn't.

    Hi @richald I have vit b12 injections. I admit they sting a little bit for a second but have never had a sore arm or anything afterwards. The good news is that in a week or sos time you will be amazed at how much better you feel!! :)

    Scimama, mrspuddleduck

    Thanks for your reassuring replies! - just have to wait a month now until the practice nurse
    can give me the jabs!
