Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Thanks. First of all, I do want this to be confidential. I dont want the forum posted on the internet.
Do you have any medical conditions or take any medication?
Several months ago, my doctor did some tests and determined that I was low on Vitamin D. So I started taking that. It resolved some dizziness, but the wiggling still comes and goes.
How are your calcium levels?
I take multivitamins daily, but dont know the calcium content.
Okay, and you don't take any other medication?
I am totally off caffienne too.
I see, does the feeling come and go or is it constant?
mostly lower lip too
Okay, this may be due to an electrolyte abnormality causing an irritated nerve
I would think you may benefit from drinking fluids rich in electrolytes like gatorade, and having a blood test called a complete metabolic profile
I have wondered if the vitamins are too much electrolyte and maybe not enough water to go with it, but I am drinking plenty of water
Okay, you should still drink water, but try gatorade as well
ok. what electrolytes should I be looking for?
The test will check all the necessary elecrtolytes, magnesium and calcium are the ones I would be most concerned with
Are you there?
yes. are we as far as we can go on this?
No, you may still ask questions on this topic , if you have any
not sure what else to lend. sounds like I need a complete metabolic profile.
That is the next best step I would recommend
I wonder if when they did the vitamin D test if they did this too.
They might have done it, it is hard to determine
I can still find the results
but the doctor would have told me if anything else was low or high on the tests
But you would need to repeat it regardless of if you have had the test before or not
well I have a physical coming up a couple months
It may be addressed at that time
thanks for your help. I just wanted to know if this was a symptom of some bigger oncoming issue.
You're very welcome
If you have any questions in the future, you may request me by starting the question with "Dr Brims" and I will chat with you
I dont find a box to select to keep this confidential. Is that on your end?
This is all confidential, no personal information is allowed to be exchanged between us
I found some other similar forum from 5 years ago where a woman asked a similar question. That is why I ask.
I cannot comment on that forum, but in this chat, we cannot exchange any personal information
I see. Thanks
