More advanced B12 deficiency may produce anemia, tiredness, pale skin, appetite decrease, constipation, diarrhea, heart palpitations, etc. One concerning condition related to B12 deficiency is subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord after nitrous oxide anesthesia.

One injection study revealed that B12 relieved low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ consumption of paracetamol for pain relief.
