I've had a problem with my left ear my entire life and have had a grommet fitted for over a decade. However, this year problems have amounted and I am interested to know if you feel any of this is related to B12.
I started the year with Flu at Christmas (proper can't get out of bed type), followed by infected sinuses and toothache. Had to have the tooth removed. Then developed post viral fatigue, which lasted a few weeks.
A month or two later went to doc thinking I might have thyroid issue, ridged nails, pins and needles in my hands every morning, still very fatigued, frequently feeling cold. Doc did blood test which showed the B12 deficiency, had six loading doses and am now on three monthly injections.
Two months ago got another infected tooth and ear infection, had three lots of different antibiotics and root canal filling to sort that. But meanwhile have developed dizziness, ringing in the ears and room spinning moments that are quite worrying. Went back to doctor who has re referred me to ENT consultant (in addition grommet has displaced). He has suggested Vertigo.
Do I have two separate issues going on or could the vertigo (possibly Ménière's disease) be related to the B12 deficiency?
