Thank you so much Freddd and Victronix. I will look at the supermarket for "no salt". I think I found a brand here: http://finefoodwholesalers.com.au/listing/BathoxAustraliaSalt How should I take it and how much per day? Can I stir some in water and drink it? The only way I found out about B12 was when I was searching and searching on the Internet vitamins to take for repetetive stress injury (from the tingling and pain in my hand and arms). It was only after seeing one comment on a page that I decided to try b12. I got some cyano sublinguals and even though I now know it wasn't the best form, within 3 days the tingling in my arms went away. Since then I don't really have to many physical symptoms (the tingling in my arms went away, and my gait improved and the fog lifted), but then these mental symptoms have surprised me. Is the tingling in the arms the last symptom to turn up? Is it the end stage of b12 deficiency? I think that b12 does affect dopemine levels because yesterday I felt so much fear all day. Not just anxiety, but paranoia. But today, after eating a lot of potassium and taking b12 each day, and magnesium, I've felt a lot better. It's amazing but also scary how much one vitamin can affect someone's mood so much. But I'm glad that I'm on the right track. Freddd - how long does it take for start up symptoms to go away?
