Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 11 days ago.

With the nausea, I'm not sure thats related to the leg numbness

You'll need tests for that such as abdo scans, blood and stool tests

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Thank you for your time
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 11 days ago.

No worries

Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 11 days ago.

The stool test would be to exclude Helicobacter pylori that can cause nausea

The tummy scan would be for gallstones that can cause nausea

The blood tests is to exclude other causes of nausea
