Hi ,

Welcome to Icliniq,

I have analysed your complaints. You are suffering from Episodes of headache with nausea , which are not present every day. also having left eye pain and twisting with tingling, imbalance while getting up, tingling in throat and over genitals, coldness over forehead ...

I would like to suggest to do some routine blood investigation tests and this symptoms seems like vitamin B12 deficiency or hypothyroidism.

Are you Vegetarian? any history of weight gain, constipation? is there any addiction of alcohol or drugs ?

please check your CBC Serum electrolytes(Na, K, Cl, Ca, Mg) S.Vitamin B12 level Thyroid profile

Hi doctor and oh ok but as far as vitamin b12 defiency if that is the problem what foods can I eat that can help with that cause I have in fact started drinking this juice that supports with the vitamin b12 and other vitamins as well. As far as me being vegetarian no but I have been eating like healthy foods and stuff like that like I rarely eat sugary foods and more so healthy foods like vegetables, turkey burgers, salmon, grilled chicken, canned tuna, green peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, brown rice and stuff like that. As far as weight gain is concerned not history of weight gain and no use of alcohol or drugs at all. Also, doc when I look up the symptoms it was most directly towards nerve problems to so if the vitamin b12 is not the problem then could my nerves be the problem ?because I feel the tingling and it’s more than one part of the body like it switches and sometimes happen combined and stuff

Hi,

No, Nerves itself not a primary problem, tingling us due to nerves irritation but for that some cause should be there , like deficiency of Vitamins or like hypothyroidism and high blood sugar level etc

and your Tingling is not persistent at one site , it's site changing so there is chance of vitamins deficiency likely. But still I would suggest to do above investigations if possible because

Your dietary pattern and contents seems satisfactory.

So as per me, there is no primary nerve problem , it's appears some benign condition. Regards
