This may or may not have anything to do with PCa, but there are a lot of smart people here and I just do not know what to do...
I'm 49 yo, have recently lost 50 lbs in about 6 months. I eat only white meat chicken and turkey, tuna, fruits, vegetables, nuts. No red meat and very little dairy. Up till a few days ago I have been feeling great.
Two days ago I got the weird feeling in the calf and foot on my left leg. A cooling, warming sensation, some tingling. I searched google and found a long list of things that could cause this. I read vitamin B-12 deficiency could cause this, and It's associated with a vegan diet. I went to the GP and saw a PA. They took my blood and did a complete work up. They were supposed to call me yesterday, but they did not. I called but they were already closed. Today they tell me there are no abnormalities, and I'm not anemic.
Today it is worse. It is both legs from the hips down. I feel weak and short of breath. I'm not able to concentrate. I have an appointment at 3:10 this afternoon.
I am on RapaFlow and Meloxicam. Both of these list side effects of dizziness, and I have felt it, but this is different. I do not know where to look for answers as the doctors apparently have no idea what's wrong. If there is a more appropriate place here at HW I would be happy to post there. I am in trouble. I need help.
