Suggest treatment for hot flashes, restless legs and itchy skin
Vitamin D deficiency
Sorry to note how you feel.
Your symptoms are indeed puzzling and I see you have already tried various medical options.
When I see someone like you in my practice, I typically order the following blood tests in addition to a detailed physical examination:
CBC (Complete Blood Count, also known as Hemogram; includes Hemoglobin, WBC and Platelet counts)
Electrolytes (Sodium and Potassium in particular)
HbA1c (Glycosylated Hemoglobin = your 3 month glucose average)
Liver function tests (SGOT , SGPT, Albumin, Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphatase)
Kidney function tests (BUN, Creatinine)
25 hydroxy Vitamin D
None of these tests require any fasting and can be done at any time of the day.
I am glad you were able to lower your A1c back into the non-diabetic range.
Sometimes vitamin D deficiency can cause muscle cramps which may mimic restless legs. So it is important to test for that
