I posted on here a week ago about my symptoms that I've had/been having.
I'm a 30 year old white female. I exercise (or try to) regularly or at least stay active and I have a very good "diet" and I get plenty of sleep. I live a busy life, but not overly stressful by any means.
Over the past few years I've experienced, fatigue, loss of balance, blurry vision, tingling in arms and legs, feet, insomnia, lightheaded, pain/discomfort in limbs out of no where, sensitive feet to cold and heat, always cold, get hot easily. These are all things that have happened randomly. Sometimes it lasts seconds, sometimes it can last a hour. I can walk down the street then "boom" foot pain and I can't move. Or in the kitchen and my knee/leg feels week like I've been shocked.
My Big "Attack": 3 weeks ago I had this very discomforting scary sensation down my left arm. It lasted all night. I felt no anxiety or rapid heartbeat or anything of that nature. Just a numbness down my left arm. Throughout the week it faded, but other symptoms came up. I was very very tired, like falling asleep at work. I had a really hard time with vision at work, my neck was so sore and stiff and my back too, sometimes I had trouble getting of my chair and moving around, my hands hurt to type easily. One morning I couldn't grasp my toothbrush, right hand. All of this last almost two weeks.
So far, blood work - clear, EMG and NV test, clear and a sleep test - clear. My doctor is referring me to a neurologist.
A friend suggested maybe I was B12 deficient. My nurse told me today that they didn't do a lab on my B12. She said I can ask the neurologist to do one and see what he says.
MY QUESTION IS: If you are B12 deficient can you suffer from an "attack" like that. Where you just go numb and feel completely run over by a truck and then for a week have an onset of different symptoms???
Does this sound familiar? Just wondering why they didn't ask for B12 work.
Thanks for any help and advice.
