I need to know your age and gender.
Since when do yo have the symptoms?
How did the symptoms start?

but no sign in the skin
How did the symptoms progress?
i explained slowly starts like itching
Ok the symptoms started as itching in the skin of neck.
no in the cheeks
sloly in the lip also
Then you noticed cheek numbness
Then the numbness progressed to left hand.
There is no skin rash
No weakness of facial muscles
its like sudden blood flow
In the face?
Do you have high blood pressure?
2month before BP was 140/90
due to family issue
then i took medicine
father in law was admitted in hospital
due to improper sleep
ihad this bp issue
Is your BP controlled now?
weekly once i am checking
i am not sure
Are you taking BP medicines?
temprorily stopped due to this kind of issues
i assumed side effect
doctor advised stop for 10days and observe
but i had 8
I think coversyl has a side-effect of paraesthesia
It means altered sensations
now what i need to do
shall i change the doctor
It can be due to many causes.
It can be high BP
shall i change the doctor
It can be a side-effect of the medicine
It can be a viral
Altered serum electrolytes can also cause it.
I think you need to get detailed blood tests.
what kind of test
or shall i XXXXXXX any general physian for opnion
I think you should see atleast an XXXXXXX medicine specialist....Neurologist is even better.
Most such inflammations subside once a cause has been figured.
You also need monitoring of BP
Do you have any question?
i will XXXXXXX the neurologist
one important question
Stress levels can be decreased with exercise, healthy diet and meditation
past 20years before i was attacked by dog ( house dog), immidiately for security reason i took raby pool injection 3days ( medicine name i think correct), after that we shifted the house after 6months the dog was fine
so any impact will be there now
Since the dog was fine...I do not think it is responsible for your symptoms
so any test is advisible means i am ready to do
is ther any chances
i hope u r busy
Actually rabies causes acute symptoms.....it means that the symptoms will be seen in a few days time
If the symptoms do not appear during that time....it will not appear later.
I think we need to test more important things for now.
I named a few tests already....
those tests should be included in your investigations.
fasting blood sugar, serum electrolytes, Thyroid, Vitamin B12 levels, Folate levels
Also if a nerve is swollen , then you will need a prescription from a doctor to decrease the swelling.
The doctor may advise other tests too.
It is important that you get these tests done.
apart from this i dont want to get fear about this dog bite
dont mistake me
yes I understand
I can tell you one thing
In the 10 years of my clinical practice I have not seen even one patient with rabies
Seeing rabies after 20 years is impossible.
i am so happy
Do not worry about rabies at this time
i will do the test as per ur advice
Worry can cause high BP too
how to communicate to u
You can ask Customer care team to put you across to me.
They will put you on call
thru helpline no
Hope I helped.
finally ineed to XXXXXXX neurologist not skin doctor
Do you have other question?
i will do it today
have a nice day
live long serve better
