Suggest treatment for pins and needles in foot and sole

pin pricking sensation along with burning sensation at the sole of the feet with some anxiety/ phobia Hi, I am 39 years old male. I am diabetic for last 2 years. I have been advised to take Mignar 50/ 25. Recently I had pin pricking sensation on my both hands down from shoulder down till wrist along with burning sensation at the sole of the feet. I also have some anxiety/phobia and I don’t get sleep at night. Whatever little bit sleep I have that is also quite disturbed. I have done a complete blood test which covers most of the blood tests 3 months back and everything was normal including sugar, however, recently have shown myself to an Endocrinologist and he suggested 10 B12 shots basis my blood report on B12 ( 214) however, with each shot it seems the anxiety is going up and no respite for Pin prinking sensation or sole burning sensation. I and I have also shown myself to a Psychologist who has started a behavioral therapy but no medication so far only some breathing exercise and some tips on thought control, however I still no respite so far, so, pls suggest. What do I do?

Hi,

Your vitamin B12 level is very low, get proper supplementation, and also check your thyroid levels, derange thyroid is also a cause of it.

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