Customer Question
How to stop the...

How to stop the electric shock shooting pain on the top of my right foot that is happening every 4 or 5 seconds

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Strangely, only happens every 2 months and lasts sometimes 2 days but sometimes 4 or 5 hours.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had back surgery in 2012 and both feet are numb on the tops.

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.
