Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Low B12 level like in your case can affect the long tracts of nerves.

THis can cause problem with gait, balance and also pins and needles sensation.

You should be on high dose vitamin B12.

Injections are favored initially till your symptoms improve.

Then you can take oral B12 supplements daily.
