Increasing venous pressure causes increased pressure in the head which leads to that headache. That's also why your face turns red. Same thing from a valsalva maneuver. ...Read more

My daughters and I are having b12 side effects headache, face redness, fatigue. Stopped 2 days ago, still fatigued. Can it be b12 induced hypokalemia?

No: You'd know. B12-induced hypokalemia is seen only when the medicine effectively treats a very severe pernicious anemia, with potassium being recruited for the new cells. Why are the two of you both taking the stuff all of a sudden? If it's on the recommendation of a "natural healer", the medicines may not be B12 at all. There are good, evidence-based holists out there -- please find one. ...Read more
