30 Bananas a Day!

Hey everyone,

Up until about 3days ago I've been feeling fine on the 811 diet (been LFRV for about 5months now), but suddenly am experiencing numbness of my hands & feet. I checked myself into the hospital today, ER, to get blood work done (last resort) and the results came back "normal", including my b12 levels, although the doctor didn't provide me with any physical documentation of my numbers. I've done a quick search on this site to see if anyone else has experienced similar symptoms & it seems quite a few members here have gone through this issue before, but without a definite answer as to what the underlying problem might be. PLEASE, if anyone can clue me into what might be happening with me you'd be doing a great service. I've been scared to do much these days as i fear i might collapse and worsen my condition. I'm going to call the hospital 1st thing tomorrow to try & get the lab results. I still feel it might be related to b12 deficiency even though the "doctor" said i was normal. I just want to feel that balance I felt up until recently.

I have not heard much about this phenomena, maybe ask Dr. Doug on vegsource: http://www.vegsource.com/talk/raw/

Definitely get tested before taking any supplements.  If you take B12 when you do not need it, your body can stop producing it.  Don talks here about what kind of test to get.  uMMA test, urine test is best, blood test is second best.  Raw Vegan Vitamin B12 Deficiency: Interview with Don Bennett.

I think not supplementing with B12 is a matter concern for some people because of ideology and not sound science. I've been a vegan for about 15 years. The only supplement I have taken regularly is B12. I considered it an insurance policy. I believe the long-term risks of not taking B12 as a vegan are too great to ignore.

Thank you for responding, ghul. No, I am not supplementing b12 only because I wasnt sure of my levels, and didn't want to do any harm by becoming dependent on a supplement as I've heard is a matter of concern for some. I'll look into the issue further through the links you provided, Thanks.

are you supplementing with B12? , if you are not i think that could be the reason you experience those symptoms. When doctors check for B12 they usually just test the serum B12 level which doesnt really say much
