Pernicious anemia, which is an autoimmune process that can cause profound B12 deficiency, is associated also with neurologic symptoms such as weakness/numbness/tingling, memory problems, personality changes. The tongue can become shiny and sore. Symptoms respond to vitamin B12 supplementation, frequently injections if pernicious anemia.
