Top 11 Vitamin B12 Deficiency Symptoms You Should Not Ignore!

by DailyHealthPost Editorial

1. Tingling hands or feet

Vitamin B12 deficiency may cause “pins and needles” in the peripheral nerves of the hands or feet.

2. Difficulty walking

Over time, peripheral nerve damage resulting from vitamin B12 deficiency can cause numbness in the feet and limbs, making it hard for a person to walk without support.

3. Pale skin

Pale or yellow skin, called jaundice, may be a symptom of vitamin B12 deficiency.


Jaundice develops when a person’s body is not able to produce enough red blood cells, causing megaloblastic anemia.

4. Fatigue

Megaloblastic anemia due to vitamin B12 deficiency may lead to a person feeling fatigued, because there are not enough red blood cells to carry oxygen around their body.
