What are some of the symptoms of B12 deficiency?
B12 deficiency can be caused by several things including:
·Memory loss and/or disorientation.
·General feeling of fatigue.
· Itchy or tingling tongue.
· Eye twitch, usually in one eye or the other.
· White spots in the skin, resulting from melatonin becoming absent in the area.
· Facial pain, usually on only one side of the face at a time.
· Sores at the corners of the mouth, sometimes extending along the edge of the lip.
· Tingling along the back of one or both thighs, staring at the hips and shooting downward.
· Shortness of breath, but without chest pain. This can occur when walking just a few yards.
· Sharp stabbing, tingling pain in the palm of one or both hands.
· Nerve shock in the side of the body. It can be felt coming on a few seconds before it hits, and then it hits almost like a mild but deep electric shock and quickly subsides.
