MS or B12 deficiency or both??? how do you know???

So, I've been seeing an MS specialist, but I'm not sure I'm going down the right road.....

I've had optic neuritis twice, numbness/tingling in legs and arms, numbness in my throat. I've been on steroids for MS and b12 injections for the past week. One of those helped my symptoms decrease. However, now I have pins and needles again and muscle twitches - which I've heard can both be signs of a B12 deficiency....But, my MS specialist took me off the B12 injections.

If I do not have lesions on my MRIs, should I pursue the B12 injections? How long until they make me feel better? All of this is sooo frustrating...

thanks!
