Paresthesias are a symptom of vitamin B12 deficiency. Pimples on the face do manifest as a common symptom of allergy after taking vitamin B12 injections. It may take some time to recover from the deficiency. Please continue your supplements. Do not increase the frequency of injections. Taking too much more than required does not solve the purpose. The body absorbs the required dose and excretes the excess through urine. Do continue the supplements till you feel better. A long term deficiency causes a serious damage to the nerves which may take a lot of time to recover. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Thanks Dr Rajagopal. Thanks for your advise. So i need to have patience and should be
regularily taking supplements so that all the symptoms like dizziness, headache and dry mouth go away.
Hello Dr Rajagopal,
Normally how many months/years does it take to recover from the b12 deficiency prblems?
Hi.I suffered last yr from Vit B6+B12+ folic acid deficiency.At first, I was receiving B12 injections but I didnt seem to be getting any better. I also had neuropathy. After 5 mths I had a review and I was started on folic acid supplements.With in 6 weeks I started to feel better.I was taking the folic acid for 8 mths and gradually started to feel myself again. I still have a small problem with the neuropathy but it is getting better by the day. Please dont stop taking your meds.If you are not sure, ask your dr about it.It does take time to recovery, but you will.Cath278.
Hello Dr Rajagopal and Cathy,
I'm starting this discussion again as i'm getting some problems again. As per my previous posts, i had vitamin b12 deficiency and i was taking b12 shots for a months.
The doctor then advised me to take b12 dots(1000mg dosage). I was taking it for a month
and i got relieved from everything but offlate for about a month i 've been getting
tingling, pricking and needle sensation in both my palms. I get this imy feet as well. Is this due to b12 again. Dr Rajagopal mentioned abt paresthesia and cathy mentioned abt neuropathy. Did u have similar problems. SHould i again go for a checkup. SHould b12 shots be taken contionously?
don't eat lemon at all .. frankly speaking it will have effect .
