Hello,

Pregabalin and Methylcobalamin are okay to be used for sensation problems with limbs as symptomatic treatment.

However, the cause should be found and treated.

Nerve conduction study and Doppler ultrasound of the limbs are necessary to understand if the problem arises from nerves or from the blood supply.

Discuss with your Doctor for these issues.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

One day I got up from my sofa and felt a sharp pain for just a few seconds in my lower left back. Since that time (2 weeks ago), I have been experiencing a throbbing, thumping sensation (like a flutter) inside my lower left back that acts up many times during the day and especially with movement. While sleeping, if I am very still, it is not so bad. When I move from side to side in bed, the thumping sensation acts up. Also, the tingling, thumping sensation seems to move, at times, across my hip and into my groin and down my leg. My leg is starting to feel a little numb and tingly when walking. What could be the cause of this? I remember having a similar incident 2 years ago. My doctor sent me for physical therapy which made it worse. We discontinued therapy and all these sensations went away on their own after a month. Unfortunately, I am experiencing this once again. I appreciate any information you can give me with tips as to how I could relieve these sensations I am feeling. Thank you.

my dad is on TB (tuberculosis) medication for a week now. Suddenly he has been experiencing leg pain while deep asleep at night, which wakes him up a several times at night. He is diabetic too. His sugar is high and is on insulin. Anything that can help him with the pain.

When going to sleep my right leg feels very uncomfortable . It is not pain, but a bad feeling. It makes it difficult to fall asleep. My left leg is not nearly as problematic. I have a bad lower back. My mother (90) has restless leg syndrome; I think she is prescribed valium for it. I wish I could better describe the sensations in my right leg, sorry. I wonder if the leg problem could be diabetes, which no one else in my family has ever had. I have been drinking 2 Cokes a day; several days ago I had 2 peaches after work and almost did not sleep all night due to my leg problem. Thanks for any suggestions.
