In brief: Quick

Improvement of B12 deficiency symptoms with B12 injection can be fairly rapid, with some patients reportedly feeling more energetic the same day.
Neuropathy may or may not be due to B12 deficiency, and as such, improvement may be variable.

In brief: Inject first!

I have all my patients on sublingual b12, 2500mcg when needed.
However, i give them a three mg injection first. Routine B12 injections can be virtually avoided by taking oral b12. Since you are low with neuropathy, i bleieve immediate injection times one is in order!
