Customer Question
I have tingling in...

I have tingling in my body from head to my feet. It's when I'm in bed. I just bought a new mattress. But I was having this problem before we bought the mattress. I's really miserable. I hope you can help me to know what it is

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

About 3 or 4 months I think. I have a head ache when I get up in the morning

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Dear,

Thanks for staying Online. I am posting my answer below-

Well, It sounds to be Peripheral neuropathy. This can occur with underlying medical condition and should be checked by doctor.

Possible causes are-
-Hormonal disorder- like thyroid hormone imbalance
-Blood sugar disorder
-Liver/ Kidney disease
-Vitamin deficiencies

You need to get detailed clinical examination and blood work. This includes-
-Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests
-Electromyography (EMG)
-Blood sugar levels, thyroid function tests, liver/kidney function tests.

The line of treatment is selected according to the cause.
For the time, you can take Tylenol and try to rest on a firm surface.

Also you can take Vitamin B complex supplements. Gentle stretching exercises should help too.

I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for evaluation and get it managed.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
