See your MD: Your symptoms do not allow me to suggest a diagnosis, but you should see your doctor for testing. There could be several things to look for - kidney stones, gallbladder or liver problems, pancreatitis, or other GI problems. I doubt this is an acute viral or bacterial infection since this has lasted 1 month. ...Read more

Seeing neuro for chronic foot burning, skin burning, tingling. Never had B12 checked but been on 110ug daily for a year- cud it still be low? Causes?

It could: It could still be low because some people have difficulty with absorption through the stomach and need to get shots to bypass it so you should still get the level checked. The bad news is that if you have a sensory motor neuropathy the list of causes is enormous and hepatitis c is on that list.

I've been having a burning sensation from what feels like the inside of my head. I've also been having tingling sensations that are dull. Thoughts?
