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.
