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
I'm sorry to hear about this
Have you had any tests like an x ray?
Years ago I had a mri ofthe brain and cat scans of the neck and foot all normal
So did you have an x ray, CT scan or MRI of your foot?
Also had alot of bloodwork to check for lyme disease and thyroid problems all normal. Yeshad all that done yeas ago catscan mri of foot and brain and neck
And it has remained for 9 years?
No it went away for awhile and just recently came back over the last few weeks really stronger especially in the left foot and leg all he time and then when sleep i feel it in neck and shoulder
And you are not on any medication?
only vitamins vitamin B complex muti vitamin fish oil probiodic magnesium
Have you ever been diagnosed with any medical condition?
wait yes occular migranes also started 9 years ago
but they are not bad and only get them every other month
Okay, have you had any blood tests?
yes just had my physical and all was normal checked thyroid and cortisol and vitamin d and b vitamins and homocysteine all normal
WHy did they check homocysteine?
because I go to a holistic doctor and she does tht as part of her testing
Okay, did you have your electrolytes checked?
no I do not think so
Okay, this may be due to an electrolyte abnormality, so I would recommend you have a test called a complete metabolic profile
can that cause these symptons?
Yes, an electrolyte abnormality can cause irritation of the nerves, which can cause your current symptoms
just found that test I had it all normal
glucose serum bu efr potassium proten etc all normal
Okay, then the next step is to have a test called an electromyelogram to assess your nerves and nerve function
I had a nerve function teswt originally when first started and it was normal
I see, then you may need to have a blood test called a CPK to assess your muscles and make sure there is no damage, I would also consider having an angiogram to evaluate your arterial function
Are you there?
what kind of test is CPK? The doctor cardiac doctor I go to also an internist doews not feel I need any cardiac testing. I go to both natural and regular doctors. I have asked him there is no heart disease in my family .
CPK is a test that will determine if you have any muscle damage, it is not a heart test. Your sympotms may be due to muscle damage
wouldn't I have muscle weakness or pain?
how is that test performed?
No, you may not have muscle weakness nor pain, it is a blood test
ok will do that , so that could cause these symptons then ?
Yes, that could cause the symptoms you have
You're quite welcome

Yes, the blood test shows if there is a problem in the muscle
what type of doctor should i see for that test?
I would not recommend any other test until you have had a CK test (creatinine kinase)
You should see an internal medicine physician
sounds g ood the test is cpk or ck?
CK, some people call it a CPK as well (creatinine phosphokinase). They are the same thing
