I called the Doc earlier today, and the Nurse called me back.

She said Neuropathy can be caused by low iron / anemia and the blood draw, so that explains that.

I did some more digging online, and found the following info about low iron anemia treatment:[list]
[*]Usually oral; usually 300-900 mg/day
[*]Initial response takes 7-10 days
[*]Correction of Anemia takes 2-3 months
[*]6 months of therapy beyond correction of anemia needed to replete stores, assuming no further loss of iron/blood
Looks like I just need to keep up with the iron pills and just give it time, (and no more blood tests for now...)
