Avatar f tn The symptoms of vibrating sensation could suggest nerve pathology. People suffering from multiple sclerosis, seizures or TIAs have described this feeling. A spine problem, such as a protruding intervertebral disc, with slight compression of the nerves, diabetes mellitus all can cause these symptoms. I would suggest that you get an MRI of the brain with contrast to evaluate for a protruding disc and a structural lesion such as MS, stroke, tumor, etc.
Avatar f tn The common causes of foot drop are nerve injury, brain or spinal disorders and muscle disorders. Diabetes mellitus, stroke, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophies are few common causes. Foot drop can be a sequaelae of severe intractable seizures. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. Consult a neurologist and get examined. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and warm regards.
Avatar f tn Diabetes mellitus, stroke, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophies are few common causes. Since your EMG is normal it is least likely to be a muscular cause. You may need other tests like blood sugar tests, MRI brain, spinal cord and nerve conduction velocity. Consult a neurologist and get examined. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and warm regards.
5374312 tn?1367290558 There are many common causes of tingling sensation in the legs like sciatica, diabetes mellitus, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, circulation problems etc.Vitamin B12 deficiency and overconsumption of alcohol can also cause tingling sensations. A clinical evaluation is very important for correct diagnosis and management. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!

Avatar f tn Both of these disorders may be associated with other autoimmune problems including Type 1 diabetes mellitus, Addison’s disease (adrenal insufficiency), vitiligo (loss of pigment of some areas of the skin), systemic lupus erythematosus, pernicious anemia, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Avatar n tn Autoimmune diseases linked to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis that cause burning feet include diabetes mellitus, autoimmune pernicious anaemia, celiac disease.
Avatar f tn Hi, The symptoms that you have mentioned can be caused by Multiple sclerosis. However, other causes like diabetes mellitus, B12 deficiency, liver and kidney diseases, Guillian Barre syndrome, Lyme disease, infections, vascular diseases, Systemic sclerosis also need to be ruled out. Demyelinating diseases like MS can be caused by the use of Humira. If so, the course of the disease is variable and cannot be predicted.

Avatar n tn HSV is known occasionally to produce acute urinary retention. One disease which needs to be ruled out is diabetes mellitus and hence will suggest you to get the urine/blood sugar done.

Avatar n tn Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes,vit B 12 deficiency, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidism They can also occur in nerve compression, transient ischemic attack, motor neurone disease, or autoimmune disorders like multiple sclerosis or lupus erythematosus or in head injury patients. Firstly, I’ll request you to get your blood sugar/HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) tested to rule out Diabetes mellitus.
Avatar f tn Hi, The causes of burning sensation all over the body could be Anxiety, Thyroid disease and Neuropathy. Neuropathy may be caused by Diabetes Mellitus, Vitamin B12 and Folate deficiency, Autoimmune diseases like Lupus, Multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis or Guillain-Barre syndrome, AIDS, syphilis, and kidney failure.
Avatar m tn Hi there. You need to be evaluated for diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, alcohol consumption, B12, folate deficiency, autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, etc. Upper thigh muscle spasms in left thigh should be checked with an EMG. For MS diagnosis, cerebrospinal fluid examination reveals oligoclonal bands and an MRI shows areas of demyelination or white plaques all over the white matter. Take care.
Avatar n tn A disc lesion in the lower back may compress the spinal nerves causing numbness. Stroke, multiple sclerosis all can lead to numbness. Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to numbness throughout the body. Diabetes mellitus can cause tingling, numbness. It is best to get evaluated by a neurologist. Take care and regards!
Avatar m tn Low volume ejaculates are caused by ejaculatory dysfunction, genital tract obstructions, or congenital anomalies. Diabetes mellitus, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, medications all can cause ejaculatory dysfunction. Genital obstructions are caused by prostate cysts, infections, inflammatory disorders etc.A detailed history, physical exam, laboratory assessment, and semen analysis can help the physician in evaluating the exact cause. Seek the opinion of a urologist. Do keep us posted.

Avatar n tn The common causes of white matter lesions are multiple sclerosis, small strokes, vasculitis, demyelinating disorders and vitamin B6 deficiency.

Abnormal levels of calcium, potassium, or sodium in your body and a lack of vitamin B12 can also cause tingling in the knee and legs. Firstly, I’ll request you to get your blood sugar/HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) tested to rule out Diabetes mellitus.
