The other day I went to my primary because my hands & feet

This answer was rated:

Hi, the other day I went to my primary because my hands & feet have been tingly on & off. Seems to come & go. Yesterday I felt fine & today I feel weak in my legs. They told my I might be deficient in B12. I go for bloodwork on Saturday to have it checked. I'm also pre diabetic. Any reason to panic?
JA: The Doctor can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. How long have you had diabetes? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: I'm not on any medication currently. The Dr has been keeping a close eye on it for the past year.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about diabetes?
Customer: Yes my primary. I get blood done every 6 months
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

What if I continue to feel weak? Do you suspect low in b12?

yes I do

if you continue to feel week you need a test called an EMG

this is a nerve test of the arms and legs to see why the nerves are affected
