Dr. Hanif warmly Welcomes you!

Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully worked through your case, and I can realize your health worries. I feel really sorry for the neuropathy you have in your toes. Being your physician, I assure you not to worry as I will take care all of your medical concerns.


Take Lyrica for to get relief from your neuropathy. It will also relieve the pain if any due to the neuropathy.
You may take multivitamin supplements with Zinc in it. Once daily and continue.
Keep a healthy and balanced diet. More dietary fibers and less refined and processed, fried and junk foods. No caffeinated drinks please that includes but not limited to tea, coffee, chocolates, beverages, energy drinks etc.
Take plenty of water, vegetables, fruits and Citrucel dietary fiber supplement. It will assist in assimilation of the nutrients into your bloodstream from the gut more effectively and will make proper bulk of stools. Take Citrucel with plenty of water. Nutrients are the key to better neuronal function.

I am using under my doctor s advice Norspan 20 mg patches & Lyrica 75 mg. I have reduced my Norspan from 20mg plus 10 mg per week and Lyrica 600 mg daily to try to combat a feeling of constant tiredness, but to no effect. I am taking these drugs because of a diagnosis many years ago of CFS & Fibrimyalgia, not exacerbated by Spinal Stenosis an d collapsing Disks. A surgeon opperated on L#-$-% clamping rods to these vertebrae, but the pain has only become worse. I have CAD CABGs in 1981, 1997 & a Stent in 2006. I have some lung problems as well as complex Apneas. I have Atrial Fibrilation with my puilse rate jumping anywhere from 200 to 30 bpm. IO now have a pacemaker inserted to keep my lower level at about 70. I will bne 80 on Dec. 7 My Total Cholesterol is around 5.0 or lower (Au). I have Type II Diabetes. I am wondering is there is any prospect of my doctor prescribing any pain killers more effective than my current treatment. My BP is usually between 100 & 127 over between 50 & 60. I take a low dose (4mg) of perindopril. Regards Bill Pil;grim
