Hi,
Need to check for Vit B12 levels in serum and also thyroid profile. They are more common causes of these symptoms.
Do followup up with these levels as correction is necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for asking.
I am Dr. Prakash HM and I will be answering your query.

The treatment for neuropathic pain requires medications other than the usual ones. You can take the prescription for "Gabapentin" from your doctor. It is very useful in neuropathic pain.
However, do provide more history and test results to identify the exact diagnosis.

Along with painkiller, you should also take Vitamin B12 supplements to help improve further.

Any further queries, happy to help again.

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
