10 Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency

Numbness, Needles And Pins

Nerve damaged is the most grave result of B12 deficiency. Gradually, this
deficiency of B12 reduces the production of Myelin which forms the protective
sheath surrounding nerves.
When nerves are weak or exposed it is possible for
the body to suffer from Paresthesia or pins and needles-like sensations also
known as a sensation of uncomfortable tingling or prickling across the hands,
arms legs, feet, or hands. 

The feeling of numbness or the legs falling asleep are also quite common.
 These signs of vitamin B12 deficiency usually occur together with Anemia.

Mobility Problems

Without an adequate treatment vitamin B12 nerves might be damaged to the
point that impact on your mobility. Your ability to move , or your walking style
could change and you might notice that your balance and coordination seem to
be not as good as they should be.
This is a common occurrence among the elderly and can cause serious accidents including falling. Despite the fact that
people who are over 60 have a tendency to display the symptoms of B12
deficiency, younger individuals with severe deficiencies are also susceptible to
these symptoms.

Paleness and Jaundice

The people suffering from vitamin B12 deficiency usually appear light-colored or
perhaps a little yellow. Jaundice is an illness that can affect the eyes and the skin and causes this yellow tint. 
Megaloblastic Anemia induces the enlargement and the fragility of the red blood cells within the bone marrow. This means that they’re unable to move out of the bone marrow and enter the circulation. 


Therefore, they become unusable to the body. This causes a lack of
blood and paleness. Since these cells are fragile, they can breakdown and
produce an excess of Bilirubin which is the chemical compound that causes
yellow or jaundice.
