B12: B12 deficiency is associated with neuropathies and non-specific neurological symptoms such as irritability, fatigue, depression, and psychosis. It is not associated with migraine headaches, per se.

Not directly: It is interesting that i see a lot of B12 deficiency in people with migraines. At the same time, i see a lot of B12 deficiency in general.
