Possible neuropathy. Neuropathy can happen as a result of trauma, or nerve damage due to the consumption of alcohol or certain medications. Symptoms can range from a numbness and tingling sensation, possibly a burning sensation, to an uncomfortable painful sensation of the extremities. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the exact cause in order to get the appropriate treatment.
Neuropathy. Metformin is known to cause a certain type of vitamin deficiency that leads to neuropathy. Anyone on this medication should also be taking a medical food called "neuremedy." the main ingredient is benfotiamine (150mg) and it is shown to reverse this specific type of neuropathy in as little as 30 days.
