  12. K Nielsen says:

    Please correct typos in this fabulous article. Third paragraph says “fingers can by other symptoms” ? In the Paris paragraph, it says “Fingers feel and cold” so perhaps the word hit is missing? And same paragraph, it says “pain in fingers assist sometimes” when maybe it should say persist?
    Also, if you are not going to reply to comments, then rather than having entry upon entry of people describing their issues to wade through, perhaps those comments could be deleted. I would suggest that prior to posting, each comment gets reviewed as to whether or not it will enhance the knowledge base and if Dr Sharma will provide further insight into that person’s particular symptoms. Otherwise the volume of such comments are useless and a waste of time for most readers of the article.

    Dear DR Sharma,
    I have been suffering from numbness (stiffness) in both hands and feet (digits, palms and sole) since January, 2021. There is no improvement in the condition. Along with them, I have a constipation problem. When there is change in stomach (i.e. empty after faeces ejection, and full with food) and gas is formed, stiffness increases. Sensation is present. Kindly let me know what I have to do. Recently, I took Gabapentine 100 mg as per an Allopathic doctor and consequently I have faced a severe trouble.
    With regards,
