Neurologist: Such symptoms may be caused by peripheral neuropathy or a lesion in the right side of the brain in the cortex. Multiple sclerosis, calcium or magnesium deficiency are less likely a cause unless other parts of the body are also involved. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. Appropriate tests will be ordered.
