For about 6 months, I have symptoms such as dizzy, lack of balance, achy & tingling feet and hands. Neurologist Dr diagnosis with MRI/CT my neck and head, blood test, spinal tap, inner ear test, nerve test, but they all came back nornal. If anyone know about these symptoms, please give me the direction. Thanks in advance.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. With normal radiological/ neurological tests, possibilities that may need to be considered include low blood sugar, low/ high blood pressure, micronutrient deficiencies, hormonal/ endocrine issues, stress/ anxiety, cardiovascular causes, autonomic disturbances, peripheral neuropathy, heavy metal poisoning etc. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Hi Dinh314
I have  similar symptoms as you except I also have depersonalization and leg fasciculations and a hard lump in the back of my neck. I have done all the tests you mentioned (except spinal tap) +blood sugar + micro nutrients +Heart CT for CAD +abdominal scans +repeated Lyme disease tests +thyroid and parathyroid ultra sound and PET scans and dozens blood and urine tests. I have been to internists, neurologists, ENTs, a psychiatrist and even a neurosurgeon and a sleep disorder specialist to make sure I didn't exclude anything. Along the way they found a chlamydiae pneumonia infection,  thyroid nodules,  a potential pericarditis, hypercalcemia and extremely low levels of vitamin D.
I have now been diagnosed with potential idiopathic early hyperparathyroidism but according to the doctor that doesn't explain the loss of balance, dizziness and leg fasciculations so I decided to put that under stress/anxiety which it could very well be after all.
Have you been under severe stress lately? Are you a naturally anxious person? It's a good thing all your tests turned out normal so far. So don't be too worried about your symptoms. If I were you I would go to an internist for a thorough evaluation as suggested by Dr Kaul. That's personally what helped me the most!
