It is difficult to paint a simple picture of what B-12 deficiency looks like. When B-12 levels are low, it takes many guises, depending on your age, length, and severity of the deficiency. Certain medications can also interfere with the absorption of B-12. Even though you may have the following symptoms it may not mean that you have a deficiency. The symptoms can also be caused by other health problems. However, it does mean that your doctor should rule out low B-12 levels as a possible culprit. Your body does not make or store B-12, so you have to get it from animal products or supplements.
If you have any of the following symptoms, you MAY be vitamin B-12 deficient:
-Memory Loss/ Brain Fogginess
-Diminished sense of touch, pain, or temperature
