Tingling and numbness in the hands, feet and torso. Feeling tired. Is this due to high potassium levels or viral infection?

my boyfriend has been experiencing tingling/ numbness in his hands, feet and torso for about two weeks, as well as fatigue/ tiredness. He saw a medi-centre doctor who sent him for blood tests, initially his potassium levels were higher than normal (there aren t any dietary reasons for this) but everything else seems to be fine. The medi-centre doctor guesses that he might have a virus... but gives no other explanation or treatment options. Please help

hi i had gone through your query and understand your concerns. i would come up with the possibility of PARESTHESIA is the cause for his condition.

-there are several underlying causes to produce this condition

possible causes;

-lack of movement ( sitting or standing in one position for a long time )
-poor blood supply due to venous incompetence
-seafood toxins
-hypothyroidism are some possible causes.

I hope this is helpful for you, thank you
