Welcome to HCM.

I have gone through your query. Based on the information provided you seem to have sensory neuropathy and vertigo and tinnitus.

You have not mentioned whether you have diabetes or hypertension.

Electrolyte disturbance also leads to such symptoms especially low pottasium levels.You have not mentioned about your diet habits ( vegetarian or Non vegetarian). Vegetarians often tend to have deficinecy of Vitamin B12, which often presents with similar complaints as you have been suffering from ( Sensory Neuropathy).

Using Vitamin B12, pyrridoxine, benfotiamine and thiamine Containing preparations ( Oral or Injectable) will relieve numbness. Meanwhile using medicines like Beta Histine ( Vertin 16 mg or 24mg) along with alprazolam 0.5 mg will relieve the dizziness and tinnitus. Take plenty of oral fluids preferably Pottasium rich ( coconut water, lemon juice, banana). Please do not take coconut water or banana in case you are diabetic.

But Please get your serum electrolytes done and get treated accordingly.

Wish you a speedy recovery.
Take Care

Do you have change in symptoms if you put the hand, feet in the hot water? Do you smoke?

Sharp pain with bluish hue in the great toe is because of insufficient supply of the blood.

You need to a battery of investigations to understand the nature of the disease. I suggest you to see a doctor locally and early management.
