I propose a forum dedicated to vitamin B12 deficiency (starting with the definition from the book, Could It Be B12? An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses by authors Sally M. Pacholok, RN, BSN and Jeffrey J. Stuart, D.O. and the list of the signs and symptoms starting with, from the following article: "… peripheral neuropathy, the commonest neurological manifestation of vitamin B12 deficiency…").
