Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am diabetic and hypertensive. My problem is, if I touch anything with my fingers, I get a burning sensation and I drop it down. Please advise me on this.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As per your complaints and previous history of diabetes, I think you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy secondary to diabetes mellitus. I will recommend some medications as mentioned below. Also, some investigations are to be performed.

Investigations to be done are:

1) Nerve conduction velocitytest.

2) Serum vitamin B12 level.

I suggest the following medicines:

1) Tablet Neurobion Forte (Vitamin B complex) twice a day for 15 days.

2) Tablet Pregabalin 75 mg at bedtime for 15 days.

Kindly follow up with detailed treatment information which you are taking.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
