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.
