The past few days I've noticed that I can't always feel my arms and legs. Like when I reach for a glass of water and bring it to my mouth, I can't feel my arm performing the action - I just know it is, because I can see it grabbing the glass, etc. Same with propping up my legs at work. Instead of these simple actions being automatic, I kind of have to focus on doing them too. This weird feeling (or lack thereof) comes and goes. Anyone know what's up?
My SWS is all in check. Only thing I've eaten recently that I normally don't is rhubarb, and yes, I just ate the stalks (not the leaves). Haven't had any in the past two days, so I don't think that's it.
Any recommended remedy would be appreciated. I don't like this numbness. Makes me feel like a robot or something lol.
Is this a symptom of illness? Should I water fast for a day or two? I is lost!
First thing I thought of was b-12.
I take a sublingual almost every day, though :-/
If you continue to feel like this I would get a blood test/get on injections. Maybe you can't assimilate B-12?
Good point. Blood work. Uhh lol.
Thank you both for your feedback.
How long has it been going on? Certain types of numbness can be a sign of Raynaud's syndrome (not sure if I spelled that right). http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/raynauds-disease/DS00433
I never was diagnosed with this but at one point would have sworn this was the issue. I suffered from it for about a year. I increased my intake of greens (more protein) and eliminated all processed foods. After a few months of this, I no longer experienced symptoms.
I'm not a medical professional so can't legally claim that it "cured" me. However, take my personal experience story for what it is--my personal experience.
