Low B12!: While that level of B12 is considered "normal" by labs in the US it is considered low in Europe and is known to cause tingling.Too much B6 can cause tingling but that is not known to happen unless taking over 200 mg/day (usually 500 mg/day or more). Try oral methylcobalamin 1000 mcg/day for a month- if does not increase may need shots. See http://tinyurl.com/ofaclgs and http://tinyurl.com/oc8up5z

Probably normal: If you do not have pain and no fever then this may be normal. All of our tongues have bumps on the back of them and just maybe you never noticed them. The tonsils can collect debris and dead cells that slough off and these can collect as small white plugs in the tonsil itself. If there is no pain it is unlikely that you have an infection.

Not usual for disk: With the muscular atrophy and neuritis, it might be best to undergo further testing. There are many possible causes, including diabetes, autoimmune, endocrine, to mention a few. At your age, a complete workup is indicated.
