A 42-year-old female asked:
I have tingly hands and feet, that seem to be getting worse. the other thing i can guess to be a possibility is my use of robax nightly for a back/sore hip injury. i have been taking them for a few weeks and they helped but i now have numb feet/hands?

Get diagnosed: The description suggests an evolving peripheral neuropathy, predominantly sensory. Granted, this could be secondary to drug or medication, but could also be due to vitamin deficiency, diabetes, etc. Best at this point, is to put your Robax on hold, contact your doctor and track down causation. We can help analyze this via virtual Concierge visit scheduled on HT.
