Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P. Jyoti :

since you have no other disease, this is most likely a sensation in the nerves

Dr. P. Jyoti :

Such unusual sensations in various parts of the body are called Dysthesias. They may occur in a patch of skin or over a whole limb.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

The different types of abnormal sensations that are experienced include stabbing pain, warm sensation, cold sensation, electric shock like sensation, pain, burning, itching, crawling, heat, cold, etc. This is often accompanied by numbness at the site.

JACUSTOMER-t3mle5p2- : Is there anything I can do to alleviate this sensation?
Dr. P. Jyoti :

In your case you are having a cold sensation

JACUSTOMER-t3mle5p2- : Yes
Dr. P. Jyoti :

There are various ways to treat Dysesthesias. This also depends on the cause.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

Maintaining optimum weight, proper diet, vitamin supplements, exercise, treating stress and depression will help in reducing the symptoms.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

You should try to achieve this at home.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

You should also take Vitamin B and Vitamin E supplements which are available at all pharmacies.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

You can ask at your local pharmacy for a good Vitamin B complex supplement

Dr. P. Jyoti :

also ask for a VItamin E supplement

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this should help get rid of this sensation

Dr. P. Jyoti :

You should also go for regular exercise.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

If these steps do not help, you need to consult your doctor for this.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

preferably a neurologist

Dr. P. Jyoti :

You may need tests like Nerve conduction tests to diagnose your condition.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ask your doctor about this and about doing a nerve conduction test

Dr. P. Jyoti :

do you have any questions?

JACUSTOMER-t3mle5p2- : I do,all those things when i am able. I have severe loss of appetite and generally feel,very lanxious. I have been to my doctor but she doesn't seem to have any answers.
Dr. P. Jyoti :

anxiety could be a cause

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ask your doctor specifically about dysesthesia

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you will get more involvement when you are able to ask informed questions

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ask your doctor whether dysesthesia is possible for you and whether you need to do a nerve conduction test

JACUSTOMER-t3mle5p2- : Could there be any connection with the unwell feeling I have in my stomach. As I said my appetite is very bad I try to eat healthily but there is little I have a hunger for
Dr. P. Jyoti :

yes it could be directly connected

Dr. P. Jyoti :

loss of appetite can lead to decreased intake of nutrients such as vitamins and minerals and this can lead to dysesthesia

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hence you should go for supplements

Dr. P. Jyoti :

do you take vitamin B and vitamin E supplements

Dr. P. Jyoti :

?

JACUSTOMER-t3mle5p2- : Yes I take vit B6 and vit. E vit B complex.
JACUSTOMER-t3mle5p2- : Is there any other thing that I can do to help myself.
Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you should also start a calcium plus vitamin D supplement

Dr. P. Jyoti :

calcium and vitamin d are often deficient

Dr. P. Jyoti :

also take a lot of fluids including water, fruit juices, etc

Dr. P. Jyoti :

there can also be potassium deficiency

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take electrolyte fluids like Gatorade

Dr. P. Jyoti :

at the same time, discuss with your doctor about doing tests for Vitamin D and Magnesium, and electrolyte tests for Sodium, Potassium and Calcium

Dr. P. Jyoti :

so for now, start with calcium and Vitmin D supplements and a lot of fluids including gatorade

Dr. P. Jyoti :

and discuss with your doctor about the tests

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this should soon help you to recover

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take care
