I new to this forum and I'm going to just jump in.
I've been giving myself B-12 shots for at least 5 years. I usually do them 3 times a week and they make all the difference in the world to me.
I was dx's with FMS/CFS& Chronic Pain in 1997. I also found out that my body stopped making B-12.
I hope this helps you. Getting use to giving yourself shots is hard to do. Put once you get the nerve they are not so bad.
I didn't have the shots but am on a daily prescription called Folbee which is basically B6, B12 and folic acid, i saw an immediate improvement in symptoms after a week on these tablets however it was not enough of an improvement to eradicate the fatigue, just take a bit of the total exhaustion edge off. I was actually prescribed the Folbee due to a mutated gene, the MTHFR which can cause elevated homocysteine levels, the Folic acid is supposed to help keep those levels low.
