Vitamin B12 deficiency warning – the ‘annoying’ symptom in your eye you shouldn’t ignore

Vitamin B12 is a crucial ingredient for the healthy running of the body, as it’s needed to make red blood cells. Signs of a deficiency can develop very slowly, so it may be difficult to diagnose the condition.

People with undiagnosed symptoms should consider that they may have a vitamin B12 deficiency.

While it’s unlikely that your symptoms are caused by the condition, there are still many people that have a lack of B12.

A quick blood test could reveal whether you should be adding more B12 to your diet.

You should consider speaking to a doctor about a B12 deficiency if you have an unexplained eye twitch.

“Eye twitch, usually in one eye or the other [may be a sign].

“It can occur on the eyelid or just below the eye. This is not usually painful, just annoying.”
