Customer Question
I HAVE TINGLING SENSATION...

I HAVE TINGLING SENSATION IN BOTH LEGS BUT SUBSIDE WHEN I TAKE NARCO. I WOULD LIKE TO GET AWAY FROM THE NARCO AND TAKE SOMETHING ELSE THAT WOULD RELIEVE THE TINGLING SENSATION.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

THE SYMPTOMS ARE ALWAYS THE SAME. NO SWELLING. TAKING TYHE NARCO RELIEVES THE SENSATION BUT ONLY FOR ABOUT 3 HOURS.

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

THIS CONDITION STARTED YEARS AGO, HOWEVER THE SYMPTONS WOULD COME AND GO. IT ALL STARTED WITH NUMBNESS IN BOTH FEET. WHEN THE NUMBNESS WENT AWAY THE TINGLING STARTED.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,your symptoms are associated with Diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

And you need to be seen by a neurologist and medications like Gabapentin pregabalin (Lyrica) and carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol) can be helpful to treat such condition causing tingling and numbness in legs.

And Narco can be gradually taper off.

Physical therapy including(TENS) and acupuncture can be tried.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
