I am 28 years Male and I am healthy until September'08. I never been to hosiptal before. Suddenly I got Pins and Needles in Legs last month. I went for my an check up and my dcotor did the blood test and MRI (For My spinal Cord). The blood test shows that I have very low level(180) vitamin B12 level. He told me to take B12 injections for 7 days, after that montly injections. I took the injection for 7 days and I was feeling better.

But again I am getting the Pins and Needles in left side of the face andalso i have the irritation feeling in my left eye for the past 3 days. I am getting the numbness feeling in my left hand and sometime sin my leg. The MRI scan looks good, except some minor disc bulges in L3-L4 level. Also I have done the X-ray for my neck and there are no negative results.

Anyone have the same type of symptoms? I am really worried about my future and I can't concentrate on my work and I can't sleep well during the night time due to this problem. What is the root cuase for these problem. Is there any problem in my nerves?

BTW, I have a minor accident 2 months back and I lost my 3 teeth. My doctor fixed artifical teeth. I hope these problem are not related to this incident.
