This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having difficulty walking.
it sounds like you could be having neuropathy in your hands causing the tingling.
you should be seeing a neurologist to get your nerves for neuropathy or damage to your nerves.
you need blood testing to check for Magnesium and iron and B12 levels to see if they are low which can affect nerves.
also there are medications like neurontin or lyrica which can help with neuropathy.
you might need a nerve EMG conduction study to see if you have nerve damage.
i have had b12 deficiency for a number of years n have been prescribed folic acid daily for six months
I hope your B12 level gets better.
do you have diabetes?
diabetes can cause neuropathy and nerve damage.
not that im aware off but am overweight n a smoker im worried about the walkin n had a few falls
if you are overweight, you need testing to check for diabetes.
you need to stop smoking as well as smoking is bad for your nerves.
you need your thyroid hormone levels checked to see if they are low which can cause weight gain.
you should not be walking by yourself at this point if you are so likely to be falling.
you might have to be in a wheel chair for now.
or walk with a walker.
my bloods were tested n they only thing that was wrong was the folates were low im waiting on an appt with a neurologist
