Brief Answer:
Please upload the blood reports.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
There are no reports attached with this query. You can upload the blood reports for a better evaluation. The pad like feeling that you have is likely to be due to low levels of vitamin B12 or due to a nerve root compression at the level of lower spine. The dosage of methylcobalamin that you are taking is correct but you need to have at least 60,000IU of vitamin D3 once a week to cover any deficiency. It is best to get the blood tests done and then adjust the doses accordingly.
I hope this answers your query.
