I have a grandmother who is 78 years old. She leads a very active life. She still drives and is constantly on the go. A few months ago she came down with a sinus infection. She has been to her doctor several times and was prescribed antibiotics and cough syrups. She seemed to improve but still suffered wtih sinus drainage. But for the past month she has seemed to be getting worse. She now complains with a bad taste that the doctor said is acid reflux. She also complains with numbness in her feet and legs, and also in her fingertips. She says she has no numbness in her upper body. She says when she walks she feels like she is walking on rocks, and her feet feel rough, but her skin is smooth. She even feels a grabbing sensation in her feet at times. She has seen another doctor and he ran several xrays and could not find anything wrong. He said her circulation is good. He wants to do a bone density test and send her to a neurologist. He also said that the numbness could be a temporary side effect from medication. She also takes blood pressure medication. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
