Tingling/burning sensations as well as fatigue and heartburn for the past few days. Seeing a doctor next week, but curious what this could be and if I should rush myself to the ER.
For the past few days I've noticed occasionally tingling or burning sensations in my arms and legs. While obviously I can't tell it definitely feels like it's a nerve thing. Occasionally part of my skin will go numb for a bit. It's happening on both sides of my body so it's not a pinched nerve. Other symptoms: fatigue (even though I've been sleeping full nights), heartburn, and twitching under my left eye (I get this sometimes when I'm tired/drunk, but not this often).
I'm a 21-year-old lady and a vegetarian. I've also dealt with iron-deficiency anemia on-and-off (I'm can be sloppy about taking my supplements) for the past year. I also smoke, get drunk most weekends, take ecstasy occasionally, and used to go on nitrous oxide binges until last year. I'm thinking this is Vitamin B12 deficiency, since a lot of my symptoms are listed here
(I've gotten the mouth sores described on the article a few times before, but chalked it up to anemia).
I've made a preemptive strike by getting iron supplements with B12 added, and upping my fortified soy milk intake. But my main point here is: I have a doctor's appointment on Monday, but could this be something panic-worthy that I should go to the ER for? Stroke? Aneurysm? MS? Nerve damage? I'm a bit of a hypochondriac and never really know when something is serious enough for a doctor.
Also, does anyone have any experiences with B12 deficiency?
