Paraesthesia in hands. Is it from Vitamin B12 Deficiency?

I have been having tingling in both hands for a week that is constant. I have no other neurologic symptoms (strength &sensory are intact). I am fatigued but also have a newborn! I took one B12 injection and wondering if these symptoms are due to a deficit?

Have no idea
by: Kerri Knox, The Immune Queen

I have no idea if they are due to a B12 deficiency. You'd need to get further testing since they could be:

1. Iron Deficiency
2. Infection
3. Vitamin D Deficiency
4. Vitamin B12 Deficiency
5. Sleep deprivation

Or a whole host of other problems. Feeling tired is not specific enough to say "Oh yes, you have B12 Deficiency".

But please read the pages on my site regarding these issues and you'll see that you can easily find out if your problem is a deficiency.

Tingling hands, B12 deficiency
by: Anne

I was having this problem at night and couldn't sleep. I had felt very dizzy from time to time over several years. I had much less energy than usual. I concluded that I had a B12 deficiency. This was confirmed after the symptoms lessened when I started eating salmon, chicken and red meat. I ordered B12 without magnesium stearate. Two months later, I feel like myself. Turned 70 seven months ago. Walking daily again 30 minutes to an hour.
