Hello.
Thanks for posting your query.

Vitamin B-12, also known as cobalamin, is necessary to keep the nervous system working properly.

A deficiency in this vitamin can cause serious health problems, including foot numbness.

Your doctor had prescribed you neurokind plus tablets to counteract the deficiency of this vitamin so that neuropathic smptoms you have can be controlled.

So I advice you to continue taking these tablets under supervision of your doctor.
when deficiency is under control, this numbness will gradually subside and you will become able to walk properly.

Hope this helps and you recover soon.

Wishing you a speedy recovery...
Regards.
Dr Saurabh Gupta.

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
