I'm not sure what a 'full autoimmune workup' would entail, and I'm pretty sure most GPs wouldn't send you on to a neurologist for just this. I
honestly don't think there's a test for autoimmune issues, it's more of a 'crossing other options off the list' sort of diagnosis...
There's a very slight chance that it's the beginning of something like MS and your nerves are just firing off a bit randomly although usually MS
presents as a tingling at first followed by random shooting pains and clumsiness/paralysis that's intermittent.
I would try taking a large dose B vitamin complex, preferably with zinc added; (it will turn your urine bright yellow, that's just excess B vitamins
being flushed out, since they're water soluble; it may at first also cause watery yellow diarrhea, so be aware of that). The reason for the B
vitamins is that they're necessary for the 'insulation' on the nervous sheaths and can help nerves that have been damaged regenerate to a point.
I've used this myself for carpal tunnel syndrome back when I was typing 8 hours a day (medical transcriptionist) and I know it works; when I'd back
off on the vitamins, the symptoms would return of tingling and pain along the wrists. There's no way to get this much B vitamins in your diet unless
you're a staunch vegan living on broccoli all the time, but these amounts are therapeutic rather than just maintenance-level. You want something
that says on the label that the amounts are in the 8,000 to 12,000% range of the RDA. No worries about overdose, they'll flush out of your system in
a day and need to be replaced. A good B vitamin supplement will balance the different Bs to what works for the body, and if possible buy them in a
health food store, not a grocery store; they'll be fresher for one thing.
I would also take a large dose of vitamin C, in the 2000 mg a day range at least. Most people in western societies are practically in scurvy status,
they eat so little. Once you cook foods you destroy the C in them, and that includes everything canned and pre-packaged. We evolved from ancestors
who cooked nothing, not even meat, which in almost all other animals was saturated with C. For some reason due to a genetic quirk, we can't make our
own C and have to eat it every day, or our cell walls literally turn to mush. Very high dose C is being used with some success on cancer patients, in
IV form up to 20 GRAMS a day. It's very important stuff, and 'modern medicine' is for the most part not up to speed on its importance. They'd
rather sell you chemo for $20K a month...
