3 rounds leg sclerotherapy, veins recur within 6 months, leg pinching/discomfort, newly visible arm and chest veins & arm weakness, need ultrasound?

Have leg&arm weakness, fatigue & autonomic neuropathy symptoms .Will +veVoltGatedCalciumChannel VGCC blood test convince GP to refer me to neurologist?

Have leg&arm weakness, fatigue & autonomic neuropathy symptoms .Will +veVoltGatedCalciumChannel VGCC blood test convince GP to refer me to neurologist?

Problems here: It's my guess that the test would be considered "medically necessary" & thus approvable only AFTER conventional neurological workup was inconclusive. Also, isolated LEMS is even rarer (much) than the already very rare lung-ca-associated LEMS. So if you DID get the test & it was positive, chances are you'd be packed off to the oncologist, not the neurologist. ...Read more

Pinched nerve?: You may have a pinched nerve in the neck, possibly caused by a disc in the neck putting pressure on a nerve. You need to see a doctor and have this checked, before the weakness becomes permanent. Good luck! ...Read more
