usually doctors don't check for magnesium levels on routine blood tests.
you can see your GP doctor next time and ask if they checked your blood magnesium levels before
abnormal magnesium levels can affect nerve function.
abnormal thyroid hormone levels can affect nerve function as well.
have you had your thyroid levels checked?
I would not stress
your symptoms only happen on and off
fixing your vitamin D levels could help.
I would focus on eating healthier and trying to exercise regularly.
when do you see your GP doctor next?
this metallic taste in your mouth most likely is from acid reflux of stomach acid coming up to the back of your throat.
to control this, you have to eat healthier, avoid spicy foods, sodas, alcohol, fatty meals
and use stomach acid reducing medications like prilosec or pepcid to decrease stomach acid.
regular exercise to improve your abdominal core muscle strengthen can also help keep stomach acid in your stomach.
also avoid laying down for 2 hours after you eat
