Yesterday Morning, I had taken nebicard 2.5 and Nexito 10 around 10:30 AM. Around 3 PM, I started feeling cold in half of my leg and hand below knee. cold was very severe and because of that I had not good sleep in night. I stopped taking nebicard and nexito both today and taken old medicine telma 40 in morning and elso 5 in evening. Now I am still feeling cold in my leg and arm and it feels inside full body. It feels like ice water is inside my body. Please suggest is it because of nexito 10. My current BP is 140/70 and pulse 74. Please suggest solution
