OK

One possibility here would be shingles without the rash yet appearing

Other possibilities would be a vitamin B12 deficiency or a magnesium deficiency

I suggest you have your doctor check this out

Shingles can easily be treated with a medication called acyclovir

For now over the counter topical capsaicin cream can help with the symptoms

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
