The first this i noticed was a vibrating in my pelvis, as if my cell phone was in my back pocket. This was constant with 2 second intervals. It lasted 48 hours. Has been gone for 2 days.
Today at work I had black floating dots in my vision, it only happened twice.
Since I got home i have had twitching in my eyelid.
I also felt a strange stabbing electrical shock feeling in my left foot, and since then my foot is tingling.
A few months back around Christmas time I had a bout of confusion that was so unlike me, it went on for days. I just thought it was cause by the stress of the holidays.
All of this is so sudden, I am scared, and just wondering if I could get some feedback.
Blood tests are commonly employed to check for vitamin deficiencies, toxic elements and evidence of an abnormal immune response.
Depending on your individual situation, your doctor may request certain laboratory tests to identify potentially treatable causes for neuropathy. These include tests for:
Vitamin B12 and folate levels (Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, & Copper per jimmylegs and http://www.businessinsider.com/whats-wr ... rts-2014-2)
Thyroid, liver and kidney functions (especially thyroid hormones testing is recommended by Kathryn Simpkins in her book, The MS Solution)
Oral glucose tolerance test (In addition, I suggest a separate "fasting blood insulin test".)
Antibodies to nerve components (e.g., anti-MAG antibody)
Antibodies related to celiac disease (Gluten sensitivity can cause neurological symptoms even if it is not to the extreme degree of celiac disease.)
Hepatitis C and B
