Will Vit B12 Deficiency Cause Palpitations?

Hi for several years i have suffered with palpitations, they seem to come and go, i can have a few then nothing for a few months and episodes of a weird lightheaded feeling and after i feel drained and Five months ago i was diagnosed with vitb12 deficiency and had a course of treatment, i recently have been getting these episodes again. Are these symptoms linked to my b12 levels? Are they likely to be low again only after 5 months ago having injections. Could anything else be the cause?
