"Why can't I have B12 injections?"

I have been struggling for nearly 2 years with all the symptoms of b12 deficiency. It all started with a sore tongue and has led onto extreme fatigue, sore bones and joints, memory loss just to name a few.
I was given b12 tablets and calcium and folic acid tablets. I just returned to docs as no improvement, got blood tests and another prescription for calcium vitamin d and folic acid.
My b12 is borderline and no need to injections. I have tried all other solutions and now am begging for a b12 injection, as a trial, to see if it works,. But I was told no! I am desperate to get my life back.
I'm 31 and feel 71! I have now resorted to buying injections online with no knowledge of how to inject them so again called my doc to ask if a nurse can show me to be told no! Why are b12 injections so hard to get? Something should be done because I don't ever want anyone to struggle to be heard as I have.
