Symptoms have been continuous for one week.
Probably peripheral neuropathy, I suggest Acetaminophen for relief.
Hi again dear,
In my opinion, it can be peripheral neuropathy.
I would recommend to use Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms instead of Naproxen.
Acetaminophen is a painkiller less likely to increase your blood pressure.
If the symptoms continue you should consult a neurologist for further evaluation.
There are several tests that can be done to confirm the diagnosis and take property treatment.
Take care dear,
