Customer Question

Hi, I have an intermittent tingling sensation in my feet (no numbness). I get it every once in a while (roughly once a month for a few days). The tingling happens more at night time when I'm lying in bed. I've had normal results from blood tests. Any advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. Well I would say it is parenthesis in a distal distribution to suggest a nutritional neuropathy. By blood work I would suggest metabolic profiles and a liver panel. Vit B12 and D and folate. Thyroid function and basic vasculitis screens with C reactive protein and sed rate toxicology profiles for heavy metals carbon monoxide if there are risk factors. An emg looking at sensory nerve function dis tally would be suggested to investigate a demyelinating vs axonal process. Vitamin therapy might be recommended or treatment with meds like duloxetine. Get back to me with questions if I can help. Please remember to rate my answer if satisfied by clicking on the stars. Dr Frank
