Methyl B12 Spray Makes Me Super Tired..
0

4 posts in this topic

I started taking a Methyl b12 spray this last week and noticed that around 2-4 hours after taking my dose that I get really sleepy.. I usually take a couple hour long nap when this happens and wake up feeling super refreshed... I also noticed I get bad headaches and light sensitivity if I try to stay awake when the drowsiness kicks in..Well yesterday I decided to skip the b12 all together to see if it was for sure the b12 making me feel this way and sure enough I did not experience the headache/drowsiness at all. Does anyone take their b12 at night? Also, has anyone ever experienced drowsiness, headaches or light sensitivity with Methyl b12 sprays?

The B12 brand is Pure Advantage B-12 500mcg spray

Other Supplements I take are:

NatureMade B Complex with Vit C (Contains no B12)

Solgar Calcium/Magnesium + boron

Carlson Cod liver oil

Just wanted to add that today it turned into a full blown migraine..which I have not had for years!.. I was so sensitives to light that I had to block out my window in my Bedroom with a blanket to sleep.. I also had some crazy nightmares while I was sleeping and woke up in a deep sweat. I feel better now. Will not be taking the spray again.

Hello,

Have you had your B 12 levels tested?

Anyways, I have read that many people will experience a worsening of symptoms before it gets better, and it is a sign that you are deficient.

However, I took Methyl B12 myself as well, and did not have a very good experience with it. I have switched over to a sublingual hydroxocobalamin, made by the company Perque. I am getting better results from this - anyways I think it is highly individual, some people will do better on methyl and some on hydroxo. Some actually recommend against taking methyl though I do not exactly understand the reason.

And also, I think the tiredness maybe a sign that you are deficient, I certainly had this when I first started supplementing with active forms of B12

I think your wise to delete the spray. B12 should be giving you more energy. I take Country Life sublinguals with no problems. I also take it in the morning as if I take it at night it energizes me and makes it hard to sleep.

    • Well I took test for deficiencies today won't get the results till Tuesday then I can go from there.. road to recovery 
    • Ask them for a copy of your results and find a good gastroenterologist in your area. Go there and give them the results. That's what I did. I didn't even bother with my GP. I got the results from the health fair and called a GI in Denver. My insurance didn't require a referral. My GI was the one who put me on the track to being accurately diagnosed. And regardless, you need to be hooked up with a good GI if you've got Celiac so that they can follow you. 
    • Also, I had my bones checked a few months back (In January), and they were awesome. I'm still shocked at how well my body did with Celiac. I hear about all of my friends on here who had crazy horrible symptoms and I never did. I'm grateful. Because those ugly things would come eventually.
    • I work out regularly and I would say NO to working out if you have been glutened or are really tired.  You know what happens to people who work out when they are really fatigued?  They suffer injuries.  I was not well enough to work out until I had been gluten free for 4 years but I am much older than you so I doubt it will take 4 years for you.  Drop the work-outs for now and just go for walks outside when you feel better. The fatigue has to be better before you try to do gym work.  I know you didn't want to hear that but I don't want you to end up injured, on top of everything else. Take care of yourself for now and let yourself heal! 
    • They say you should not work out if your sick or dealing with such issues. I on the other hand do the opposite I will work out even if running a fever, I feel lost if I do not, and the endorphins help me feel fullfilled and relaxed......I have a few other issues as well >.> sitting still causes me to have mini panic attacks. I actually have to be on a stationary bike while on the computer lol. I swear it originates from being stuck in bed for days in the past unable to move, I fear being stuck unable to move my body like it used to sometimes. Got to admit the scariest thing in life is when your own body does not do what you want it to and it turns on you. As for steps, etc....I personally do about 24-30k steps a day or 11-14miles, Most of it pacing lol, anyway everyone is different so I can not tell you what to do just my own exp. Make sure you eat plenty, drink plenty of water and tea, and supplement anything your body might need. I eat constantly throughout the day to keep me going and enough protein and fats that it seems like a body building diet. Be careful and do not push yourself too hard, if you start feeling dizzy, tired or odd lay down for 15-20mins for a power nap. I do this twice a day at least just out of habit.
