Posted , 4 users are following.

Dear friends I am new to this forum, From past one year I have neck pain which moved to my lower back after some time, I feel really weak , feels pins and needles in my neck  and arm . I have done MRI which shows only stiffness in muscles rest of things are normal . I feel light headed and depressed most of the time with tiredness , muscle aches and  fatigue. Last week I done my b-12 and D3. My b-12 level was 294 pg/ml and D3 was 36.6 ng/ml . Please I need your help and advise on the level of B-12 294 can really creates such symptoms.

    Hey, hope you feel better.

    I have been diagnosed with low B12 -

    Level 142. Also have low calcium and foliate and folic acid.

    I have felt so I'll for weeks and weeks, pain/stiffness/pins and needles in shoulders, back arms and wrists, thighd, could hardly grip a pen. Extreme fatigue, no appetite, dizziness.

    Had first loading dose Tues and although not back to normal at all... Feel a lot better already. Still waiting on PA and coeliac results but injections have helped already and I haven't had issues getting help from my doctor. I'm in Scotland.

    Not sure what levels of B12 are problematic but worth going back to doctor if you have symptoms.
