47 yr old wife w numbness/ tingling feet/hands for days.tonight
Most likely nutritional deficiency.
Thank you for posting your query.
I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.
I have noted your wife's clinical details. Based on this, she has features of mild peripheral neuropathy (where the nerves in the skin get affected). The most likely underlying cause could be nutritional deficiency such as vitamin B12 or thiamine deficiency. It would be useful to start vitamin supplements for her.
Watch for worsening or numbness or occurrence of any weakness. If that happens, she would require evaluation to exclude other more serious causes of neuropathy.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
