Something is wrong with me and I don't know what it is.

For the past week I have had a constant tingling feeling in my fingers more proment with the left one. I have also had decreased appetite, loose stools, tiredness and dry feeling in the back of my mouth/throat.

I thought it might be the weather or something that I ate but its not getting better. I made an appointment to see a doctor in a few days.

Any one have any ideas?

I have anxiety disorder but this is something different.

  • FYI I am 30 year old female. I saw doctor on 6/18. She tested me for Carpal Tunnel which was negative and thought the stomach issues were anxiety and not related to the tingling. I had lost 3 lbs since I last weighed myself. (119.5 lbs used to be as high as 134) Still having problems and after coming home from work on 6/23 I was experiencing tingling/weakness in my legs and having a hard time walking/sitting up. I went to the ER. They did a blood test. My potassium level was 3.2 (normal is 3.5-5.0) and glucose was a little high but everything else was in normal range. Went back to the doctor on 6/24. I lost 3 more lbs since I last saw her. (Weight as low as 114.5) She ordered an MRI to test me for MS. 6/30 Have not been at work since 6/23. Able to stand/walk for only short periods of time. Legs/feet still weak/tingling and need support and I can only sit in a chair for a few hours at a time. I occasionally feel tired/light headed/thirsty etc... Weight up to 116.5. My goal is to stay around 125. MRI is normal!!!! See doctor on 6/25 to decide where to go from here. Could all this be caused by low potassium? I eat a banana everyday and I was supplementing magnesium before all these problems.
