Neurological problems

My sypmtoms started about 2 years ago with an occasional tingling in hands. And over the years got much worse: now my hands and feet tingle when I am at rest. Often during the night the hands become numb. It all started with the extrimities (hands and later with feet) but now the problem crept up into my thighs. When there is a pressure on thigh nerves (sitting for example), or a blood pressure cuff sqeezes my forearm, the tingling gets pretty bad. During the day it doesn't bother me much (when I am on the go), but when I stop and sit down , I can feel the sypmtoms again. No pain, just uncomfortable.
I have consulted a neurologist. An MRI (to check for MS) showed that everything is good,
a nerve conduction test was excellent, no Lyme disease (blood test) and numerous blood tests (diabetes, kidneys, thyroid, B-12 difficiency) were all within normal. The doctor said, that I am just fine and healthy, but the sypmtoms would not go away. I would like to find out the cause! My husband and I would like to have another child. Is it safe? Would it affect the baby while I will be pregnant?
Thank you in advance for your time to answer my question.

  • I have the same thing. I hope someone out there has the answer. What was your B12 level? I'm currently taking B12 methyl 5000mcg to see if it helps. B12 deficientcy can do this. My level was 400 but that is to low for me. I hope this gets rid of it. I'm sick of it!! I'm trying accupuncture to see if that helps too. I'll let you know.
