The secondary etiology of most neuropathies is due to insufficient blood-flow. In your particular case, and especially the symptoms appearing in a limb suggest that it may be possible that you have a condition of inflexible red blood cells.
There may be other physical conditions causing this inflexibility of red blood cells in your case. While it is costly to diagnose this condition, there is a reasonably priced remedy readily available.
The key ingredient in this remedy is Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA). It is found in Evening Primrose Oil. Usually GLA comprises 9%. Take one capsule per day. If in 14 days, your symptoms do not appreciably diminish, then take two capsules per day. If at the end of 30 days, there is no noticable improvement in the symptoms, then you do not have this condition.
If there is improvement, then the treatment is effective for you and the condition of "ovoid" red blood cells was the cause of your symptoms.
The actual mechanics of this condition - when the treatment with GLA is effective, is due to the inflexibility of the red blood cells. This is caused by the fact that if the red blood cells are not perfectly round, they become inflexible.
All tissue in the human body is connected to and fed by - the microvascular system (known as the capillaries). When blood cells cannot pass through the capillaries, the attached tissue suffers cell-necrosis. In this case, the patient will experience: "electrical zaps", tics, and other nerve phenomena. In this particular case, the tissue being denied nutrients is most likely that of nerves.
Flexibility of red blood cells is required because red blood cells are 7 microns in diameter and capillaries are 4 microns in diameter. Thus and inflexible red blood cell will not pass through the capillaries to supply nutrients to the affected tissue.
GLA causes the red blood cells to normalize, that is, to become round. GLA together with Trental are used to treat diabetic neuropathy. This condition in Diabetic neuropathy is caused by the excess glucose in the blood attacking the microvascular system directly, thus preventing the passage of red blood cells throught the capillaries attached to tissue.
Try the GLA (Evening Primrose Treatment). It has been effective for me. I have had such symptoms in my right leg, below the knee since 1999, but it is kept in check (that is, it has occurred infrequently in the intervening years).
