Customer Question

Mu husband has come concerning symptoms. Started with tingling in fingers of his right hand. Progressed to going down his arm to fingers. Now seems symptoms are starting on the left night. Last couple of days he has had sudden vision problems, where suddenly he cannot focus his eyes. (Note: he has worked in an office for 36 years in the home basemen which has no windows. Seems to be having great fatigue that gets a little worse every day. Do you have any idea what these symptoms together could be?

Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of clinical experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It is hard to tell exactly what is going on...but I can say this for sure:
These are not things he should ignore nor are the something he should try to monitor and deal with at home on his own.
It has nothing to do with his trips to North America....
I strongly suggest he see is MD TODAY for a complete evaluation, especially with the weekend rapidly approaching.
Does this make sense to you?
