Numbness/pins needles/pains

I am currently undergoing a very long drawn out process to get a diagnosis. Doctors think Sjogrens Syndrome.. along with the usual Sjogrens problems I have been getting some strange other symptoms:

Numb face/tongue which lasted a few weeks and then cleared up.
Numb arm with shoulder pain and tingling in hand and numbness in fingers.
Numb thigh/hip area.
Pins Needles in feet.
Restless legs/aching when trying to sleep

I have an "urgent" appointment with a Neurologist which is not until the end of August (great eh?). Any advice anyone can give me with regards to dealing with all this? Will there be more damage caused by not having this dealt with for ages?
Will this progress further - worried I will be numb all over!!
