Recurring pain on the left of throat, difficulty in swallowing. Temporary relief on taking B12 supplements. Help?

Hi, I have difficulty swallowing and pain when I eat anything spicy. This started 3 years back when I delivered my baby. The doctor gave me B12 supplements and the problem was resolved. After about an year I again had the same problem and I checked my B12 level was extremely low., I started taking supplements and the problem subsided temporarily and then again reappeared.A year back I consulted a ENT specialist and got a sonography done. The reports were normal. Now again I am getting the same pain on the left side of my throat and difficulty in swallowing.

From history it seems that this might be due to B12 deficiency.
Go for full treatment of this deficiency with injectable and oral treatment.
Take more dairy food. green veggies and fruits.
Ok and take care.
