Brief Answer:
I need little more detail of the illness

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have studied your case and I think you are having neuropathy. This can be due to nerve compression or B 12 deficiency. Before I advised you anything I would like to know little detail of the illness.
1.Do you have neck pain also?
2.Since when you are having these symptoms?
3.Do you have Diabetes, Thyroid or smoking problem?
Please send me answers of these questions.I will try my best to help you.
thanks

Brief Answer:
You need to take medications

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
thanks for replying. You need to get your serum B 12 estimation to see if there is low methylcobal level.if yes then you need to take methylcobal 1500 microgram ten injection one daily for ten days.
Also you need to take tablet pregabalin M at night time. These two drugs will improve your tingling and numbness.
thanks
