Default I Had Doctor's Appointment Today...

Well I posted a while back on how my hair has been thinning and I didn't know why and I thought it was related to my weight loss and diet, well, I got some blood work done today and apparently my B-12 is low. So I have to come to the doctor's office every week for the next month and get vitamin B-12 shots and then I go in once a month for them. I am happy that I know why my hair was thinning and happy that everything else was normal in my blood work and that I can fix everything now.

But I am curious about these shots... has anyone else ever had them? Do you feel different after having them? Going to get shots on a weekly basis just feels so strange to me... though I will go do it because I want my thick pretty hair to be back to normal!

Some people here take them in attempt to lose weight, funny enough. Apparently if you have low b 12 it will give you quite the energy boost.

So if anything, sounds like it's going to help you on your weight loss journey as well

I second that. I have heard of ppl doing really well losing weight on B12 shots, and I'm an energy pill/drink junky, b vitamis rock.

I am so glad you posted this!! A few years ago my hair starting thinning badly. I wondered what was going on but never made it to the doctor. About a year ago I started taking vitamins and eating more healthfully and my hair started to thicken back up. I wonder if that was what was wrong with me!? Good luck with your shots.

A few of the ladies that I worked with had taken these along with diet to help them lose weight and it worked quite well! The also had tons more energy. Good Luck!

my mom takes these shots. she was really low in iron and B-12 and therefore energy. When she first started getting them she said she got an instant jolt of energy and now she's evening out. Happy for you that all else is well
