So, I'm a little concerned. The past few weeks, I've been feeling a little "off". Recurrent mild numbness in my hands and feet; I've always been clumsy, but have been dropping things and tripping much more than usual; slightly decreased peripheral vision... I've fallen three times in the last three days.

I'm afraid to WebMD it, because every time I do that, I convince myself that I probably have a brain tumor or something. Should I just be focusing on getting to bed earlier, eating healthier, and drinking more water? Or should I see a doctor?

ETA: I have been convinced to call a doctor. Thanks for the overwhelming multitude of opinions (and potentially more irrational panic than WebMD would have caused )

doctor. I would not think numbness is because of dehydration or lack of sleep. and you should go this week.

I think numb is probably the wrong word. More like everything feels kind of dull. It's usually when I'm cold.
ETA: I can still feel things, but my skin feels kind of tight, or like I'm feeling things from further away, if that makes sense. I don't really know how to explain it.

At my check up three months ago all my results came back as "perfect" in the doctor's words.

Okay, I did the WebMD symptom checker thing and "Vitamin B12 Deficiency" and "Low Blood Sugar (Hypoglycemia)" both sound like they could be the root cause.

Still see a doctor?

The other thing is that I don't have a doctor. My gyno has always just done extra blood work at my annual, and I had a full physical in January for a job thing (which is when the doc said I was "perfect").

In my best momma voice: GO SEE A DOCTOR, NOW.

I had the vitamin B defficiency, but just had like tingling in my hands and feet. Never fell down because of it.

Do the blood work and know for sure.

I think it sounds like your head is going to fall off so don't move too suddenly and try and keep your back straight.

Go to a doctor for peace of mind if anything.

Peripheral neuropathy

The numbness thing sounds right, Mayo Clinic said it's like wearing a sock on your hands, which is kind of how it feels I guess. I don't have any of the rest of the symptoms though.

I do have a pinched nerve in my back. My chiropractor has been working on that. Could that be affecting this?

The thing with falling is that I really am clumsy. The two times on the escalator, I just assumed it was because I was wearing flip flops and my feet were super cold (I refuse to admit it's still in the 50s even though it's May).

Amazonia, I recently had symptoms like yours. Went for a check up, ANA count was very high which usually indicates Lupus or Arthritis -- but tests showed neither. Extensive blood work shows my body is very low on Vitamin D. So I'm taking one prescription Vitamin D a week and already see/feel a difference after two weeks. Get checked.

Go find a general practitioner. I know you haven't needed one up until now, but honey? You need one.

It could be a pinched nerve, low blood sugar, or a dozen other things. That's what the nice women and men in the white coats are there to find out.

So go see one before you're back in school again and don't have the time, okay?

I have known two people who have had similar symptoms, both to the verge of being diagnosed with MS, only to have it turn out to be severe vitamin B deficiency. The thing is that if it's really severe (or pernicious anemia), an over the counter B supplement is not going to do the trick. I also agree with whoever said you should have a really thorough blood panel, including rheumatology (especially if anything autoimmune runs in your family at all), endocrinology, vitamins B & D and a full iron panel.

Go to the doctor. Stay off webMD!!

I know quite a few people with MS. Seems like for them it started with clumsiness & tingling. You should have this evaluated, if for no other reason to rule out MS.

The doc I saw for work in January was about as full a workup as you can get.

I'll check with my insurance company about where I can go tomorrow, and try to find some doctor reviews on Yelp.

It's not consistent, just occasionally, and the "numb" feeling usually goes away after about 10 minutes.

ETA: What do I tell the doctor's office when making an appointment? That I want a checkup? That I have numbness?

All of the above. You need to be seen because...

Make sure to mention the falls and how they occurred, especially the one last night.
