Hi , I am looking for some help ! My doctor has told me that I,am folic acid deficiency . So I take 1000 mcg a day and my b12 level is 172 . The doctors said that range is normal . I notice that your normal levels for b12 are 200 plus . I live in Canada . I have tingling in my hands , headaches , pain in my flank area and I,m also getting sores on the roof of my mouth !!! I was just looking for more info . Are these symptoms normal ?

Re: folic acid deficiency and my b12 is 172

My husband was 300 and the norm was between 200 and 900. His hemotologist told him to take the B12 shots or the B12 that disolves under the tongue. She said even though it was the norm it was low, He had dizziness and forgetfulness. No mouth sores though
