    Are you in the U.K?

    What was the range <from - to> of your Vitamin B12 test result as it looks to me that you are B12 deficient

    Symptoms of B12 deficiency tend to develop slowly and may not be recognised immediately. As the condition worsens, common symptoms include:

    Weakness and fatigue

    Light-headedness and dizziness

    Palpitations and rapid heartbeat

    Shortness of breath

    A sore tongue that has a red, beefy appearance

    Nausea or poor appetite

    Weight loss


    Yellowish tinge to the skin and eyes

    If low levels of B12 remain for a long time, the condition also can lead to irreversible damage to nerve cells, which can cause the following symptoms:

    Numbness and tingling in the hands and feet

    Difficulty walking

    Muscle weakness


    Memory loss



    PsychosisDo you know what your Folate (Vitamin B9 or Folic acid) level is?

    There is a complex interaction between folic acid, vitamin B12 and iron. A deficiency of one may be "masked" by excess of another so the three must always be in balance.

    Symptoms of a folate deficiency can include:

    symptoms related to anaemia

    reduced sense of taste


    numbness and tingling in the feet and hands

    muscle weakness


    Folic acid works closely with vitamin B12 in making red blood cells and helps iron function properly in the body and your B12 levels are low.

      It is not uncommon for some symptoms to appear to get worse before they get better as the B12 starts repairing the damage done to your nervous system and your brain starts getting multiple messages from part of the body it had "forgotten about" or lost contact with.

      I sometimes liken it to a badly tuned radio on which you have turned the volume up high trying to catch the programme you want when all of a sudden the signal comes in loud and clear and the blast nearly deafens you.

      A lot will depend on the severity and longevity of your B12 deficiency as to how long before there is no further improvement or recovery.

      Some symptoms will "disappear" quite quickly whereas others may take months or even years. There is no set timescale as we are all different.

      If you can get to see a doctor please also ask him/her to check your Folate level as this and B12 help your iron to make red blood cells and to function properly.

      If you have thyroid problems this may also put you at risk of developing a B12 deficiency.

      Your doctor needs to check any other reasons why you became deficient. Diet? Medications? Other diseases? Depending on what he finds will determine whether you need the B12 injections for life.

      I am not a medically trained person but I have had P.A. (a form of B12 deficiency) for 46 years.

      I wish you well

    Hi Praful

    I sympathise it them a lot of years to diagnose my restless leg syndrome and with that as it has worsened over the last few years now comes low b12 low folic acid and low iron levels since being on the recommended treatment by my neurologist I'm at the moment stable and feel a lot better I found homeopathic treatment did nothing so my advice would be take supplements for your b12 if that's what there offering they are non toxic so won't harm you,hope this helps good luck
