Re: Acupuncture for nerve problem
I have been to three back drs, two foot surgeons, chiropractor and acupuncture dr to resolve the squeezing, numbing, tingling foot pain for three years. I have had two nerve conduction tests on my foot, steroid shot in foot, 4 steroid shots in my back and also 8 weeks of physical therapy. I am going for another nerve test in June but my regular dr still thinks it may be coming from the pinching at the L-5 level of the spine and not a neuroma even though I don't really have back pain but the occasional flare of the sciatica nerve. Some of the doctors think the nerve problem comes from both the foot and the back. I want it fixed just like you do. I won't give up. The only thing I can suggest is maybe have a nerve conductive test on your spine too, perhaps it is not just your foot causing the problem. I wish you luck and pain free days.
