Any one experienced:

Has anyone had B-12 and Folic Acid injections and how soon do you feel better.
From a not-healed, new celiac disease, with gastro. problems.

Any takers? Lisa B.

I began seeing a difference fairly quickly, but it took several weeks for me to really get energy again. Watch the folic acid levels if you begin to have insomnia. I had to lower mine because I would take a shot and be up for a couple of days. Boy did I ever get a lot accomplished over those couple of days, though!

I haven't had shots but I did take a B complex with folic acid for a while, and it did help especially with the brain fog and fatigue - almost immediately for me. But I wasn't sick for long before going gluten free (a month of D more or less). I think my levels are ok nowadays though because I started having a bit of insomnia as well. :) Nowadays I just take a pill if I've recently been glutened and need to be able to work.

they say 48 to 72 hours but it took me about a week and a half to start noticing any differences. and to see major differences in my forgetfulness and poor concentration it took about one month.
