I am a 30 years old woman, and a year ago I started to complain of recurrent (maybe twice daily)attacks of trembles and loss of control over my muscles to the extent that I couldnt stand on my feet nor do any fine work with my hands,these attacks are accompanied with severe hunger that I couldnt wait to eat anything infront of me,,and after I eat fully,the tremors fade away but the tingling sensation in my legs doesnt go and I still feel twitches and restless feeling in my legs even while lying down,knowing that I dont have diabetes nor thyroid problems,nor do I take any medication for any systemic disease,but I have access urates in the urine,and I tried taking vitamin B supplements but with no results,
what could it be?

  • It sounds like you need to go to the doctor, and perhaps get referred to an endocrinologist or perhaps neurologist. It almost sounds like you are having episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). There are several causes of this, but one of them could be a pancreatic tumor called an insulinoma, so you really need to get checked out.There's other things it could be, too, such as electrolyte imbalances or a disorder in your metabolic enzymes. Make sure to tell your doctors about the uric acid in your urine, as it might help them diagnose you.Also, there could be something neurologic going on. Hopefully your doctors will figure this one out.It might be helpful to keep a log of all of your food intake, and when these attacks occur. This may help your doctors diagnose you faster.

  • had something similar going on with me and my Girl she is anemic, pernicious and so am I... mine is not as complicated but pernicious anemia or anemia period prevents the blood from feeding your system. Can lead to weakness, heart conditions such as palpitations or fast heart rate.... Vitamin B tablets don't always work either... when I was a boy I had hypoglycemia, I was an athlete, it's very particular, and usually sugar will fix it immediately like a Coke with Sugar, no diet or alternative sugar. Though your body needs more longlasting sugars to mantain than cheap fixes. Usually Hypoglycemia hits people with a poor diet or who skip meals, if you have had poor nutrition it can always be an underlying cause of various problems. As now we know it's not how you eat today, but how you ate for the past decade or longer than can influence your health and wellbeing. the way you desribe things, it could be Neorogolical as the other who answered your post described or something in the organs. You never know. This doesn't sound like thyroid but it's cheap enough to test and so diabetes. Usually diabetes involves the legs and circulation, odd it isn't that. If eating well fixes you, you may be malnurished and not even aware. Or you may have not be absorbing your vitamins. Such as in Anemia you may eat all the B-12 and Folic Acid, but it never gets absorbed. So there is a lot you may have to research. I am still trying to find more simple and basic cures for my anemia and my Girl's... Bad bad luck with it, expensive to get the B-12 Shots and even people who do don't neccessarily get perfect health afterwards.
