What Causes Severe Facial Numbness?
They gave me neurotin to take and it made symptoms worse. Any thoughts on possible cause? I am going crazy with symptoms
Further testing is necessary.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
I think that additional tests are necessary in order to achieve a correct diagnosis of your concerns.
Blood tests about vitamin B12, D3 levels, thyroid gland function tests, spinal tap, nerve conduction study and EMG, evoked potentials ( sensory and motor ) are necessary, in my opinion, to evaluate further conditions such peripheral neuropathy and to exclude completely ALS, multiple sclerosis.
If, in the end these tests will result negative and no condition is found responsible for your symptoms, anxiety and stress disorder should be taken in consideration.
Discuss with your Doctor about these tests.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
