Brief Answer:
Need to rule out CTS.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. Based on the description, we need to rule out a condition called as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). In CTS, the median nerve gets slightly compressed at the level of wrist, and may cause tingling, numbness, stiffness and pain in hands.

The diagnosis can be confirmed by doing nerve conduction studies.

There is no need to worry, as it can be easily treated with medications, if confirmed.

I hope it helps.

Brief Answer:
Medications can help now.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

Yes, medications can help you. you can take either pregabalin or gabapentin capsules for relief of your symptoms.

These symptoms can also be caused by pinching of nerves in the neck region due to slipped discs.

MRI of cervical spine may be done at a later date, if symptoms persist.

Medicines would help.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

For coldness, medications such as pregabalin or gabapentin capsules would help. Coldness is also related to the same nerve problem.

Brief Answer:
Reply is below.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

Pregabalin is used at a dose of 75 mg to 300 mg per day. If you were my patient, I would start a dose of 75 mg at bedtime and I would review you after one month.

Pregabalin would not affect the blood pressure or it does not interact with enalapril.

Hi,Am suffering from hypothyroidism which in turn caused huge hair loss & hair thinning,My Doc said Eldervit 12 inj taken once a week for 7 weeks will be helpful for hair loss.

Also thyronorm 100mcg has been given for hypothyroidism with a calcium tab

Is that okay to go-ahead with this one

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
