Thank you for posting your query at
I have noted your wife's symptoms. We need to exclude a diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy, where the nerves in hands and legs get affected. This can be done by doing nerve conduction studies.
As of now, medications such as pregabalin capsules can help her get better.
Please also check her vitamin B12 and D levels.
Best wishes,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar MD (Medicine), DM (Neurology)

Yes, you can start pregabalin capsules. However, it is a prescription drug, and needs to be prescribed by your physician.
