I have excruciating pain in my back thigh all the way down…

Customer Question
I have excruciating pain in...
I have excruciating pain in my back thigh all the way down into my foot. My foot goes numb. I know from recent xrays that I have degenerating osteoarthritis in my lower back. I just recently had pain and numbness in both legs...this is always in the backs of my legs. Those pains are no longer, but I am left with this numbness and spazam type pain making it difficult to walk which makes the pain worse. I saw an add for these problems I have having called Neuopathy , which would maybe helped, but I can't afford $6300. with my insurance paying five or six hundred. Now I don't know what to do or where to go find the cause, Can you help me? I am a senior and am very much aware what aging can do to the body. My name is Marie

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
