Pain on injection site after taking B12 shots

by Shweta

My mother was recently detected with oestoporosis as she has too much pain in her arms.. her dexa score was way below normal. Doc advised her to take 5 vitamin B12 shots and also put her on calcium medicines..

My Mother took 2 B12 shots a week from a local practioner but yet after a month of taking the shots she experiences pain on the site where the shots were given.. there is no redness, swelling or inflammation but she does have continuous pain..

She applies cold packs & hot packs but they really dont give her any relief.. And she also had pain in her arm...How can she get rid of the pain??

That's why i don't recommend B12 Shots

That's why I don't recommend B12 Shots. There are always the possibility of B12 Shot Problems when you get a shot.

They are sticking a needle into your tissue and they can hit nerves, or cause lots of other problems. A condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is a long term problem of chronic pain caused by injections, among other problems.

So, why take shots when you can get the same benefits from sublingual B12?
