Dr S.A.Alam :

Hello, Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question.

Dr S.A.Alam :

Do you have some other medical problems like diabetes ?

Dr S.A.Alam :

How much alcohol you take weekly ?

Customer:

No, I do not have diabetes.

Customer:

Alcohol: very little, only less that an bottle of beer every night.

Dr S.A.Alam :

Since when you have developed these symptoms ? Does these symptoms occur in both feet ?

Customer:

No wine or hard liquer!

Customer:

These symptomos have started to be noticed, perhaps in the past 8-12

Customer:

months. Yes the feeling is in both feet.

Dr S.A.Alam :

Have you gained some weight ?

Customer:

I am 5 feet- 9 inches and have been 205 lbs. recently I am 200 lbs

Dr S.A.Alam :

Do you get short of breath on mild activity ?

Customer:

Ye,s but I have all ways been this way. If i go up a flight of stairs I am out of breath and need to wait before I can talk. But I have been like this for 30-40 years. In the mornings I can walk to the breakfast table, sit down, and have to wait a little before I can say a pray out loud. sometimes too tired to read a paragraph out loud--in that same situation on getting to the table in the morning.

Dr S.A.Alam :

Do you have some urine problems like passing too much urine or too less urine ?

Customer:

I am 83 years old, but doing very well for my age. They say I look like I'm 60-70.

Customer:

I need to lay down and rest an hour after lunch (12pm to 1:30pm) becuase I'm too tired to be able to do anything. Upon arising, I'm good and ca be active thrugh till the night. Coffee helps me keep awake during the mornings.

Dr S.A.Alam :

ok

Dr S.A.Alam :

Thank you for your input.

Customer:

I have an enlarged prostate, but i urinate quite well--not real strong but well and regular. Colonoscopies have removed palaps through the years.

Dr S.A.Alam :

These symptoms that you have mentioned are indicative of possible sensory nerve injury.

Dr S.A.Alam :

This can happen with causes like vitamin deficiencies, diabetes and hypothyroidism.

Customer:

What type of a doctor would deal with sensory nerve injury?

Dr S.A.Alam :

other common causes are kidney failure.

Dr S.A.Alam :

In your case as you do not have symptoms of diabetes, hypothyroidism and kidney problems

Dr S.A.Alam :

so vitamin deficiencies like vitamin B1, B6 and B12 are likely cause.

Dr S.A.Alam :

So initial step is to take these supplements which are available over counter.

Dr S.A.Alam :

For symptomatic relief you can take advil, motrin.

Dr S.A.Alam :

If this does not help and your symptoms does not improve over couple of weeks

Dr S.A.Alam :

then you need is to get in touch with your general practitioner.

Dr S.A.Alam :

he should do your clinical evaluation and check you for diabetes, thyroid problems.

Dr S.A.Alam :

Your questions ? thoughts ?

Dr S.A.Alam :

You have more questions for me ?
