Four years ago I started out with numbness in my right foot and was diagnosed with Vitamin B12 Deficiency. I started taking shots. I would wake up in the night with burning pain and slowly that decreased. Then a year later I woke up numb on one side. Since that time, I have had episodes of weakness on my right side and facial numbness. My speech goes south of the border and I sound like Elmer Fudd for a couple of weeks and then it magically clears up. During that time, my face droops and I have tingling sensations in it. This last time I have had the right side of my face muscle stay contracted. I have muscle spasms in my legs and hands on a regular basis. My doctor recently upped my B12 shots to twice a month to see if that would help. I experience extreme fatigue all the time. Is this part of the B12 deficiency syndrome or something else?
