Paresthesia

Paresthesia is a type of pain in the form of pricking, numbness, and/or tingling. For example, a numb spot in the middle of your foot or a burning sensation on your back. Why do we get this? It is believed that Paresthesia is due to a damaged Central Nervous System ,- which may be the root of Fibromyalgia

Medications that work for Paresthesia are Anti-depressants, specifically Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors or SSRI’s, and Seratonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors. Other treatments include Vitamin B¹² and Acupuncture
