22 Jun hypnic jerk and vitamin B12
I am wondering if those strange nightly disturbances might be vitamin B12 as well as magnesium.
Interestingly, it was a search on this site (or to this site – I am not sure), that I think might have the answer to those strange night disturbances.
It will be interesting to research the interaction between vitamin B12 and magnesium, but a few weeks ago, as this sort of ‘nervous shudder’ crossed my body and into my head. I thought ‘It is a nervous thing!’. And promptly forgot, and tried to consistently supplement magnesium (for the spasms)!
Now I am wondering if the ‘tingling’ sometimes in my hands and feet and the night ‘nervous’ phenomena, might be vitamin B12. It is not as though I eat *alot of meat.

What do you think? The most obvious solution is to eat meat. But Kimberly Snyder did say in her book, that her vegan friends will need to supplement vitamin B12. I have these cool ones you put under your tongue to help with absorption and also some activated B complex from the friendly nutritionist / doctor.
It will be good!
Have a great day xxo
