Re: can somebody pls explain...

my mother was having the same problem except she also got sores in her mouth. Her doctor is giving her B12 shots, and having her take additional B12. I don't think it is helping a lot, but she let it go for a long time before being diagnosed. Hopefully, she will see results soon.
Good luck, maybe your doctor caught yours before it is too bad.

hi thankyou for replying, sorry to hear your mother is having the same problem, i have read that it can take a few weeks/even months for the treatment to take affect so it could be the case where your mother is concerned. mine only started a week ago, completely out of no where, i am pregnant and wondering if the dry mouth could be related to that other than the b12??
