Hello,
Deficiency of vitamin B 12 can cause anemia, fatigue, palpitations, headache, numbness or 'pins and needles' and decrease your sensitivity to touch, vibration or pain. It can also cause confusion, depression, poor concentration and forgetfulness.

To treat vitamin B 12 deficiency take a diet rich in vitamin B12 diet like a non veg diet and meat and liver products. If the levels are low, then you may need to take injections of vitamin B12 as well.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
