Hello and Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.

Vit B12 deficiency deficiency may cause pain in your back and ankle.

Vitamin B12 can be found in large quantities in animal products, including meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, and dairy products.If you are not strict vegetarian take these diet.

Other than injection , you can take oral vit B12 supplements after consulting your doctor.

Hope this helps you.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health...
