I have been getting spontaneous cold chills down one leg.

Resolved Question:

I have been getting spontaneous cold chills down one leg. The first time that it happened, I thought that my phone was vibrating in my pocket, but it wasn't. They start at my waist and go midway down my left thigh. It has happened while sitting and standing and lying down. I am a 39 year old active woman in good physical condition.

Dr Wajid :

Hi

Dr Wajid :

Welcome to just answer

Dr Wajid :

Since when do you have this problem?

Dr Wajid :

Also are you over weight?

Customer:

I am 5 feet 4 inches, 125 pounds, bp usually around 105/70, resting heart rate around 60. The first time that I had these symptoms were 7 to 10 days ago.

Dr Wajid :

And what medicine do you use for sciatica?

Customer:

occasionally ibuprofen, usually use chiropractic care and exercise to treat sciatica

Dr Wajid :

Thank you

Dr Wajid :

Well this problem seems to be related to your sciatica and the cold chills are basically the neuropathic signs for a pinched nerve

Customer:

Even if there is no pain that coorelates with the cold chill symptoms

Dr Wajid :

Yes it can happen without the pain as well by simply appearing as numbness, tingling, feeling of hot or cold...

Dr Wajid :

So I would suggest you use Cap Lyrica 75mg twice daily for it

Dr Wajid :

Thank you

Dr Wajid :

Any further queries?

Customer:

I have had numbness and tingling and a feeling of hot associated with sciatica before, but this is the first time that I have had cold and cold chills, this is good to know that cold with no pain or numbing can happen too - is Cap Lyrica an over the counter med or prescription

Dr Wajid :

No you would require a prescription for it...

Dr Wajid :

It is a prescription drug

Dr Wajid :
