Help if you can

so I've had some vision issues for a bit and varying symptoms of sporadic numbness in my leg.

Recently my arm started feeling a decrease in sensation and it moved to my hands and now not only is there some numbers but tingling pain in my arms and joint Pain. My doctor had such a long wait before the date I can see him.

Also in the past few days I've been having pain and some numbness in my upper and lower back. I am so worried and Internet symptom checking had only made me more neurotic about all this?  I worry something is really wrong .

I've also had a pretty bad cough for a really long time. Maybe it's all related. It just feels slightly worse every day though the numbness switches around and some days one hand is worse than the other with pain. I'm not sure whether to try and stick it out 8 days until my appointment or call my doctor's office (which doesn't have an official urgent care service) and tell them I feel my symptoms are urgent. Every day just makes me more panicked, which I'm sure doesn't help my health either.

I would see a doctor and ask to be checked for diabetes, the vision and numbness can correlate to the beginning of diabetes, Usually, an A1C can determine if you have it or not.

Also, I would see a chiropractor, pinched nerves in the neck and other areas, can cause numbness and blurry vision.
