Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
Started 8 days ago with only left leg, knee to toes numb, tingly and pins and needles with my knee purple and reddish in color when I got cool. Next day it was the right leg, knee to toes along with the left. That night it was both arms elbow to fingertips along with the legs, knees to toes. Went to doctor and he ran blood work that showed I was low on B12 and Potassium vitamins.He prescribed me steroids and ordered me to take vitamins and if not better in 2-3 days he would run tests for peripheral neuropathy. Made another app. for this coming up Tuesday. Things have only gotten worse sense I saw doctor, no good changes. I hurt all over now in my muscles and it kinda feels as if my vanes are being tied in knots,burns and aches terribly. Are these signs of peripheral neuropathy?
