for about 2 years I have to blink repeatedly to try to focus. have pins and needle feelings and strange asleep like sensations and numbness in several body parts including left cheek. my left hand has been numb for 5 months. 5 months ago started having a loud locust sound in my head. (numbness and sound doesnt go away, feelings happen sitting laying or standing) had positive ANA test...2nd one negative after anti inflammatory meds. Under Veterans Administration medical care. How do I get them to send me to a Neurologist? I know there is something wrong. I am dropping things and just having a terrible time. It is getting to where I can't type, do up my pants, open things ect. It isn't in my head like they are trying to imply. When I try to go shopping I get very light headed and feel like I am going to pass out. In the heat I feel like I am barley hanging on by a thread.
