Hello I'm Dr Chip

This isn't an emergency situation but it does need evaluation

The possible causes would be a vitamin B12 or magnesium deficiency or possibly an allergic reaction so you need to see your doctor for an exam and blood work

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
