Are you taking sublingual B12? That tingling may be a sign that your body isn't processing it yet from food or regular supplements.

I am but not consistently. I take a multi vitamin and biotin in the morning with Flax oil in my smoothie. This just started about a week and a half ago. Mostly can only feel it in the morning when I get out of bed or when I rub my hand across my feet when putting lotion on. Should I be concerned?

Try taking the sublingual B12 consistantly for a week or two and see if it helps. As with anything else if something really concerns you talk with your doctor, or just call the office and ask to speak with a nurse and ask for their insight.

For me that tingling was due to B12 deficiency but that may not be the case for everyone.

Have you had your B12 level tested recently? If so, what was it, and what was the reference range (this can differ from place to place).

I would urge caution if you think it's B12 related. Very low B12 can cause irreversible nerve damage, I know as I was very lucky to escape it. I had a hematologist pretty much read me the riot act about how dangerous my levels were. I had dizziness and disorientation and a tremor in my foot at my lowest, luckily they went away but I needed a good number of injections before my levels stabilised. My lowest reading was about 80, with the bottom of the normal range being 145.

Not trying to be dramatic, but it can be serious!

Thanks. I will check my B12 and Iron lab work when I get home to see when they were last done.

Keep in mind that if you take a vitamin with folate that can give the B12 a higher reading than you really have. We can also be deficient in B12 for quite a while before it shows up in blood work. If you have kept your tests handy also look for a decrease in levels over time. If your levels are below 500 it is a good idea to supplement. B12 is a vitamin that you will excrete excess of so taking large doses sublingually for a short period of time will not be a problem.

Tingling in my hands and feet often occurs in me for two reasons. One my thyroid meds are off and two I got airborne glutened. (I am a hypersensitive).

I am on liquid B12 and have been for a few months but my levels were scrapping the bottom so I'm starting on shots shortly. It will be interesting to see if that helps, I hadn't known about the connection. :) Thanks!
