Customer Question

started 2 years ago with tingling in feet. progressed to numbness in calves, thighs, belt line and lower back. Nerve induction test showed 60 %slower leg nerves, and 50% slower arm nerve speeds. Also tunnel carpal in both hands. Both were repaired this spring. Now, after resting, upon standing I have involuntary muscle spasms in legs and arms which can last a few minuets. Also extreme stiffness in my whole body. After moderate exertion, I don't have the ability to straighten my back or legs without resting, and then the tremors begin. I am on metoprolol for irregular heartbeat (mild), and coversyl low dose. I have also been on champax in the last 18 months on and off. 48 years old, male. Please help.
