Hello, I am a psychiatrist.

A vitamin B12 level of 357 is well into the normal range.

There is no link between vitamin B12 and bipolar disorder. Likewise, there is no link between vitamin D and bipolar disorder, although people can become depressed with a low vitamin D level.

People don't usually become disoriented with a vitamin B12 deficiency, but they may have memory problems which could lead to disorientation.
