Hi.
As per your case history you are having numbness due to vitamin b12 deficiency.
My treatment advice is -
1. Take good nutritious diet full of green leafy vegetables and milk.
2. Take a vitamin b12 supplement once daily for 3 months.
3. Other treatment options are oral gabapentin, injectable vitamin b12 given only after consulting a dermatologist.

If problem persists then consult a neurologist.

Thanks.

Hello, maybe you can. I m concerned about some numbness & tingling in my hands & arms (mainly my left). I also feel it sometimes in my legs. Sounds like anything familiar so far that I may should be very concerned with. Also, a few months ago I incurred a head injury (gash requiring few stitches) & I guess I ve been recovering from a mild concussion but this just started (tingling & numbness).
