Can B12 Deficiency Cause Muscle Pain
I'm having muscle spasm in right side of my body. I had severe B12 deficiency, being treated for past six months. Is there any relation or not?
Muscle spasms: Possibly not related. However, severe low b 12 levels can cause spinal cord disorder (subacute combined degeneration) superimposed with nerves malfunctioning. The resultant weakness and postural problems can cause muscle spasms as a result. Check with your physician for proper diagnosis and treatment. Hope you feel well soon. ...Read more
B12 deficiency can be due to a lack of absorption or intake from diet. Since B12 is primarily found in animal products (e.g., dairy, egg, meat, etc.) vegetarians are more at risk. A deficiency is suspected when rbcs increase in size (e.g., high MCV and/or MCH in cbc) and can cause megaloblastic anemia. Symptoms can include fatigue and neuropathy. It is best corrected with ...Read more

Band, for those who cannot take B12 injections, new studies have shown that a sublingual (under the tongue) dissolving B12 tablet raises B12 levels as well as injections. Both bypass the digestive tract and go straight to the blood stream. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Doubtful: Your question is very concerning. You're a diabetic, you state you are sad, and you're just reported loss of smell and taste. These need to be worked up. Is it you antidepressant medication? This is infamous. Do you have nasal polyps? Easy to fix. If you are also B12 deficient, this is extremely serious and needs to be worked up and addressed. But it's probably not the cause. ...Read more
Possibly indirectly: The principle treatment for iron overload due to hereditary hemochromatosis is phlebotomy--removing blood/red blood cells. Other important nutrients such as B12 and folic acid are also removed. Many hematologists recommend supplementing vitamins B12, B6 & folic acid to help support the blood when a patient is receiving regular phlebotomy. A daily multivitamin/mineral is a good place to start. ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length.

They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
