Migraine aura ?

So my neurologist has asked me to keep a diary to see if my pins and needles and burning sensations in my arms and legs are anything to do with headaches ? Anyone have any similar symptoms ?

Yes, and they seem to be connected to a B12 deficiency and an old neck injury. I also have migraine though, and every odd symptom tends to be put down to that by doctors, to the point where I had severe shooting pain in my face attributed to migraine - it was actually an infected wisdom tooth.


I have b12 deficiency .


what treatment do you have?


like Frodo my first thought was could B12 or folate deficiency be involved.

You can find a list of symptoms of B12 deficiency here


there is a significant overlap with folate deficiency but the difference between the two would be that B12 develops slowly over time and folate tends to start very quickly.

If it seems likely then suggest you take a look at the PAS forum on HU


Hi RB76,

I started having those symptoms when I was taking topamax and propranolol. I've stopped taking both drugs and my feet and legs tingle, burn and ache. I don't have a neurologist so I have no idea what is going on.
