Estrogen Dominance Creates a Vitamin B Deficiency with Nerve Disease Neuropathy

Creepy Crawling Feeling or Burning Sensation in the Arms or Legs or Feet

Creepy Crawling Feeling or Burning Sensation in the Arms or Legs or Feet Estrogen Dominance creates a vitamin B deficiency. Whenever there is a vitamin B deficiency, a neuropathy or nerve disease can develop. A Bioidentical hormone progesterone can counter Estrogen Dominance and stop the Vitamin B deficiency. You can also take Vitamin B. Vitamin B is water soluble so you don't have to worry about overdosing on Vitamin B. I usually recommend that my patients take Vitamin B in the morning. If you take Vitamin B just before you go to sleep, then you will have vivid dreams. You can take a wide spectrum Vitamin B-100. You may have to take Vitamin B and wait 6 months or more for the nerves to heal.

The sensations of the neuropathy are described as being unpleasant and in the arms, legs, calves, and feet. The pain is usually there for months or even years. They are described as:

  • Crawling
  • Tingling
  • Cramping
  • Creeping
  • Pulling
  • Painful
  • Electric
  • Tense
  • Uncomfortable
  • Itchy
  • Tugging
  • Gnawing
  • Aching
  • Burning

People seem to want to move their legs. They seem to want to pace back and forth or walk.

The history is punctuated by:

1. The sensations start when they are at rest. The unpleasantness starts when they are lying down, resting or sitting for hours watching a movie, in the car, or at the movie.

2. The sensations stop when you get up and move around. People get up and stretch, move and walk around.

3. There are more sensations at night and less during the day.

4. The neuropathy is accompanied by muscle twitching (the twitching is from a magnesium deficiency). The muscle twitching is labeled as periodic limb movements of sleep or PLMS.
