Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi.

See a good neurologist. First thing would be to rule out other causes for the pain especially the tongue pain. Second, There are other medications for a small fiber neuropathy which is what your father seems to have. Some of them e.g. Duloxetine may help your father.

Hello Dr. My hand is shivering and fingers are like a deadly feeling when I was bike driving. What is my hand problem.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, your hands have a web of nerves that help control movement and provide sensation. When a nerve becomes pinched, you may feel numbness. Bike riding puts pressure on the wrists and palms of your hands. This stress can interfere with the way nerves work. Considerations: *see your doctor rule out the cause of the tingling and numbness. * stay off the bike until your doctor rules out a medical problem.
