Longer monitor?: 24 Hours is a fairly short time to monitor. When I evaluate syncope patients we often settle in for a rather longer period of monitoring. That ranges from days to weeks to months, depending upon the individual circumstances. If someone's heart stops for 4 seconds, but it only happens once every week or two, 24 hours may not be enough to catch it.

Some may fade....: When there is tingling, that may fade with time once poisoning with B6 stops. However, because B6 is toxic to the sensory ganglia and causes permanent cell loss there, the loss of balance tends to at least partly remain even after the poisoning stops.

Many possibilities: Back pain with problems in the leg(s) can come from many things: disc problems, muscle spasms, spinal cord inflammation (rare), bone problems, etc. I generally recommend a thorough evaluation/examination by a doctor who sees lots of people with back and leg problems. That's a good first step; sometimes next steps include MRI scans, EMG tests, and such, but a good examination is important.

I highly recommend this Doctor for any and all neurological issues. If there is a way that I can possibly have him intervene on my behalf with my present doctor I shall not hesitate.
