Jun 23, 2016 · feels like pins and needles in Bones, Joints & Muscles

My rheumatologist recently discovered I am vitamin B-12 deficient. She said
it can cause pins and needles feelings. I just read up on it and found this from a list of 7 Symptoms of B-12 Deficiency:
2. Pins and Needles
It’s very common to experience pins and needles if you sit cross-legged for far too long. However, pins and needles (or the feeling of numbness) throughout the body when you haven’t compressed any part of your body, can indicate a B12 issue. Numbness or the feeling of electric shock waves can be the result of nerve damage in B12 deficient patients. Nerve issues in the body can be traced back to low oxygen levels, due to poor red blood cell production, which the B12 vitamin largely affects.

I don’t take this drug but you might try taking an anti-acid before the pill
– to coat your stomach. I would ask the doctor first, as it may block
absorption of the medicine.

Jun 3, 2016 · I have had a scab in my left nostril for years. in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

You might try a product called AYR— comes in a tiny tube – it is a clear
gel that keeps your nostrils moist inside so they do not scab over. It

takes very little and after a few days you can stop – because hopefully your
own system may begin to keep the area moist on it’s own. Hope this helps.

So glad you found the answer to be something so simple. I’ve tried that but it didn’t really work. I was hairdresser for 25 years standing on my feet all day – 8 hour days – but I noticed many times customers ears were never at the identical level either. Sometimes they’d say I cut one side burn shorter than the other but if matched left to right , head-on – they were even. I so appreciate your taking the time to share your story with me. I’m down in the dumps now after so many years with no answer at all. Just in hopes some nice person like you replies and said “oh, I had the same thing – it was only……” My prayers would be answered.

Actually, the doctors all seem to have no real answer. Or saying spinal stenosis can cause this – and I have had spinal stenosis – however, I’ve had a lumbar 360 – followed 2 yrs. later by surgery on the L3-L4 —- (during which they removed some of the pedicle screws from first surgery.) I have had sonograms of my legs with the diagnosis of venous insufficiency in left leg. It retains a lot of fluid. But I feel they are only doing the sonograms on my legs and my pain is up in the buttocks areas. How, rather where would they test for claudication affecting the buttocks? Yes, I’ve been to several physical therapists over the ten years but none of them have been able to help me. It’s not just tight muscles as one doctor recently suggested – as I’ve had therapists to put me through so many stretching exercises without any help. I do have a recent RX for stretching those muscles again – and doing water aerobics – probably due to my spinal surgery still being fairly new. (3 months) Thank you for helping me with this. Your words make me wonder about my blood not carrying enough oxygen to the buttocks area. How would they check that? By the way, I have an appt. with a rheumatologist next month.

Thank you for your help. I don’t think my problem is cancer related because I’ve had it so long, but I will definitely consider seeing an urologist. I appreciate your taking the time to write me.

May 2, 2016 · Long term disabled vet with severe pain. Any tips on exercises? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I can’t offer you any medical similarities with myself – but I do want to say thank you for your service. Veterans are the greatest heroes on earth. I’m so very sorry this all happened to you and sincerely hope you get the right help here.

Kay – wouldn’t that affect all my muscles? Or show up in basic lab work
over the past ten years?
