DR HASAN :

Hi

DR HASAN :

Thanks for your question

DR HASAN :

Customer:

and circulation

DR HASAN :

and both were fine?

Customer:

yes

DR HASAN :

so do you still have burning?

DR HASAN :

what did he prescribe?

Customer:

yes and numbness. Nothing was persribed

DR HASAN :

ok fine

DR HASAN :

in my opinion this can be due to nerve inflammation like neuritis

DR HASAN :

systemic causes like diabetes, vitamin deficiencies can not present acutely like this

DR HASAN :

trauma can do this but i hope you didnot have any

Customer:

No trauma. Neuritis in both feet?? Been gradually getting worse for 1 year. Began with tingling in 2 toes next to big toe in both feet.

DR HASAN :

ok

DR HASAN :

Yes this still can be neuritis

DR HASAN :

however this is for last one year

DR HASAN :

you have just mentioned

DR HASAN :

so did you visit neurologist?

Customer:

no

Customer:

should I?

DR HASAN :

yes definitely

DR HASAN :

you should get nerve conduction studies done

DR HASAN :

This will clarify the situation

Customer:

How about a podotrist? Could this be serious?

DR HASAN :

and drugs like carbamazapine, gabapentin etc can help you get rid of this

DR HASAN :

No its not serious at all

DR HASAN :

i assure you

DR HASAN :

but neurologist is the person you need

DR HASAN :

Have you been tested for vitamin deficincies?

Customer:

No, I take fish oil, multi, 80 mg aspirin each day

DR HASAN :

yes you should take some multivitamin tablet which contain B12

DR HASAN :

because vitamin deficiencies also present this way

DR HASAN :

and you should be checked for that

DR HASAN :

I hope this helps you

DR HASAN :

your thoughts?

Customer:

What other vitamins could I be lacking beside B12 that would cause this?

DR HASAN :

mostly of B group , specially B12

DR HASAN :

and for people with burning feet or numb feet, we start it in begining usually
