Thank you for your reply.

I would suggest you to get your blood sugar monitored on a regular basis . Also a blood Hb 1 Ac tests needs to be done to monitor sugar levels.

Diabetes is one very commonly associated with such nerve problems and can result in the similar symptoms.

Tab. fluoxetine 20 mg daily along with blood sugar levels can help.

thanks

what is fluoxetine 20 mg
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 4 years ago.
Flouxetine 20 mg is a a drug that acts at the nerve levels and reduces the chemical levels of serotonin. this will help in reducing the incidence of the nerve signals that cause the abnormal sensation
