Q. I have a pricking sensation when I hold my phone. Why?


Hello doctor,

I am an 18 year old female. I have a problem with my fingers. They keep hurting, even if I hold my phone for just fifteen minutes. At the beginning, it was just a prick that came a few times per day. Now, I feel my fingers burning and itching, to the extent, I have to stop whatever I am doing. One year ago, in a hospital, they told me I had a slight lack of calcium and honestly I do not drink a lot of milk or eat cheese. Is it the cause?

  • This is due to electrical hypersensitivity. This can happen due to a vitamin B12, calcium or vitamin D deficiency.
  • I suggest the following medicines:
  1. Tablet Pregabalin 75 mg and methylcobalamin 1500 mcg, one tablet before food at 7 PM every day for 15 days.
  2. Tablet Shelcal (Calcium), one tablet in the morning before food, for 30 days.
  3. Tablet Vitamin D (60 K) once daily for 10 days, then once a month for 11 months.
  • Reduce the usage of cell phones and other electronics.
