Vitamin B12 deficiency: Pain experienced in these body parts could be a sign you lack B12

In a study with the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, patterns to the role of a B12 deficiency in non-specific chronic pain was analysed.

The study noted: “Profound vitamin B12 deficiency is a known cause of disease, but the role of low or intermediate levels of B12 in the development of neuropathy and other neuropsychiatric symptoms, as well as the relationship between eating meat and B12 levels, is unclear.

“The objective of our study was to investigate the role of low or intermediate levels of B12 in the development of neuropathy and other neuropsychiatric symptoms.

“Our findings show that low B12 intake may be associated with a broader spectrum of neurological disorders than previously thought.”
