can all these symptoms be related to a neurology problem?

hello im 31 and since 5 months ago i noticed a few changes in my body; first i had really painful heartburns and i felt like something was stuck in my throat; i went to the emergency and saw a dr who eventually sent me to see the ORL; i saw 2 ORL doctors  since i felt i should get a 2nd opinion and i was eventually told it's from reflux; i've been taking pantoloc for 4 weeks but that sensation that i have something stuck in my throat is still there; but i also noticed that the tip of my tongue feels like numb, like it was burnt o something, then i have pain in my upper back, mostly my neck, my left arm including my hand gets a tingling sensation once in a while and one night i got really scared because i couldn't feel m y arm at all(i might have slept on it but don't know for sure). i noticed I have less force in my left arm and sometimes i get super hot all of a sudden and my heart races even though i didn't make an effort. i was tested for lupus but it came out negative. all my blood tests look fine but i still feel there's something wrong. sometimes i get slightly dizzy but in October i had a scary episode where i got so dizzy that i couldn't even stand and i couldn't control my body. can all these symptoms be related to a neurology problem?

Hi there. You could be suffering from a musculoskeletal painful syndrome complex with chronic, widespread pain, fatigue, heightened pain in response to tactil pressure. Others are skin tingling, prolonged muscle spasms, weakness in limbs, nerve pain, muscle twitching, palpitations, functional bowel disturbances and chronic sleep disturbances. Cognitive dysfunction or brain fog, impaired concentration, problems with long and short term memory, inability to multiple task, and depression. genitourinary symptoms and interstitial cystitis, headaches, hypoglycemia, chronic widespread pain like shoulders, neck, low back, hips, etc. varying degrees of facial pain. Other co morbid associations are rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and temperomandibular joint disorder. Consult your neurologist with this speculation. Take care.

thank you for the reply. i saw a dr (generalist) and he referred me to a neurologist but it could take up to 6 months for me to get an appointment. meanwhile, as per my chiropratician, since she wasnt able to relax the muscle on my neck she told me to try acumpuncture so i took an appointment with an acupuncturist, we'll see how that goes. any other suggestions?
