Re: Please help with my back problem
The pain in your legs is nerve pain and it's becuase you have nerves that are being compressed. The fact that you are losing feeling in your ankle and foot would concern me.
If I were you, I would first stay away from the chiro, then get yourself to a good back doctor who can figure out what is wrong with your back. It's not normal to have to sleep like that. AND if this has been going on for 10 years my guess is that you have suffered some permanent nerve damage.
You really need to get into a doctor and get this figured out. After 10 years I would want to be out of the pain or have a valid reason for why I have it. BTW it isn't good to take so many OTC pain meds either.....
