Vitamin B12 deficiency: The sign 'in the feet' warning the condition is causing 'damage'

The authors detailed the case study of a 54-year-old computer engineer who noticed he could no longer feel his mobile ‘ring’ when it was set to vibration mode, in his pocket.

The patient, who had been a strict vegetarian for many years, was treated with vitamin B12 injections which he continued to receive at regular intervals.

The authors explained: “His serum B12 levels are currently normal, and he reported that he noticed an improvement in his memory and started to feel the vibrations of his mobile phone again, several weeks after commencing treatment.”

A loss of vibration is medically understood as the result of megaloblastic anaemia, which in the advanced stages is characterised by paranoia, delirium, and confusion.
