Default DX'd b12 def. Confused, don't know what to do. Help

I've been dx/ with B12 def., my MMA was high at 590, top of range is 353, and that was after 5 weeks of 1000 mcg of jarrows sublingual lozenges. Anyhow, felt like crap during that time. I tried taking 2 lozenges daily, made me sick with more neuropathy, and made my headache worse. I tried 5 lozenges, made the same side effects, but i went right to sleep. I couldn't keep my eyes open. I tried a Cyano injection made me sick with headaches. I tried hydroxo inj. for a week daily, and on day 7 ended up in the ER because of racing heart and high blood pressure (I don't have a BP problem). They told me to stop the B12 shots. Anyhow, I have reduced my shots to every other day, but it's like a rollercoaster during those 2 days. I also take 1000 mcg of sublinguall methyl b12 and 3 mcg of AD-b12. I keep reading how methy is better. I don't know whether to continue the hydroxo shots, and try the methyl shots, and I would like to increase my mb12 sublinguals, but it makes my b12 symptoms 100 times worse where I can't function (I have 2 kids to take care of). Any thoughts, suggestions or advice? Thanks.

Default Update

Just thought I would update you guys. Still struggling along. My last test results were:

Serum b12 2000
MMA 86 73-376
Homeocysteine plasam 4.0 0.0-15.0
Pariental Cell Antibody negative.

Here is my problem. Still feel like crap. I was giving myself daily injections, and it just seems to wear off after 24 hours. I've tried to stretch it to 4 days, and by the 3rd day all of my symptoms started coming back. I've been doing injections since the middle of May. I'm trying to taper off, but I feel horrible when I do. I still take a daily sublingual 5,000 mcg. I've seen 2 Naturopathic Dr.'s, one said to do it daily, the other said to quit. I don't know what to do, or basically when to take my injections, but I feel just terrible if I try to stretch them out. Any thoughts. Thanks.
