Hi,

Based on the history you have shared, you need to get it reviewed by a neurologist and get sensory system examination done as it can be because of peripheral neuropathy. B12, folic acid and D3 levels may be checked. Replacement may also be started.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Saddiq Ulabidin, General & Family Physician
