What causes dizziness,pins and needles on leg and numbness around mouth?

I have an MRI next week but am curious about possibilities now... symptoms include dizziness (constant for over a week), worse when I stand up and walk, pins and needles when in the hot bath on left leg and left side of the face, pins and needles and some flash numbness around mouth and nose, dull headaches, extreme fatigue, eyes feel like sandbags, pain when moving left eye to the left. Had a VNG and it came back abnormal on my left side. I am 27 white, overweight, smoke, all other bloodwork is WNL, emotional ups and downs the past week

Hello!

Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to a metabolic disorder (chronic anemia, thyroid gland dysfunction, or an electrolyte imbalance).

For this reason, I would recommend performing some blood lab tests too, besides brain MRI.

MS can mimic this clinical situation too and it would be excluded by a normal MRI.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
