Neurologist: I hope one of those "inept" PCP's has screened you for diabetes, connective tissue disorders, atherosclerosis of heart and/or peripheral vascular system, cancers, and a myriad of other things they typically do in any given patient, any given workday. What you have likely won't be diagnosed in just one visit, with a PCP or neurologist. So, see a neurologist but find a good PCP for long term care.

Start with primary: I would start with your internist or family doctor first. They can then help you with some of the problems and then send you to the appropriate specialist if needed.
