Brief Answer: Neuropathy. Detailed Answer: Hello, Tingling and numbness is more likely due to neuropathy. Presence of occasional skin color change and dizziness is significant in this context. In this situation I would advise my patient to check for high blood pressure and blood pressure changes during posture changes. I would also order blood sugar test to rule out diabetes. Besides, I would order cardiovascular evaluation. I would urge you to visit a cardiologist who can tailor the aforementioned test. Hope the answer helps you. Let me know if there is any clarification. Regards

I have neuropathy in my feet and legs. I just started taking 3 gabapentin - 300mg and two metanx every day. When I had treatment for prostrate cancer my doctor started me on Centrum Silver. Is it okay to continue taking this vitamin along with the two prescriptions that my doctor has me taking? My son-in-law thought that the combination of the three pills would cause a high B-12 problem.

Hi I am a 33 yr old male; I had an attack of vertigo almost three weeks back. I went to ER where they said it s Vestibular neuritis and I was put on 8mg Serc and 5mg Stematil. I took the meds for 5 days and was apparently fine. On the 8th day had this nausea with a little wobbly feeling; consulted a local doc and he started me on 16mg Serc for 5 days. The moment I took 16mg my head had this fullness feeling and my head was almost always wobbly. 5 days after I went to Neurology and they said my neurological exam was fine but I should take 5mg stem and 8mg serc for 7 days. The next day I consulted an ENT Surgeon and he said it s Viral Labyrinthitis and that I should be fine by the end of the present medicinal course. But even though I am taking the meds, my head still feels wobbly and have this occasional nauseated feeling. I am very concerned as I have to travel in a month and my symptoms does not seem to be getting any better. An advice is much appreciated.
