Customer Question
About 10 months ago...

About 10 months ago I started having electrical shocking in both legs from knees to bottom of my feet. I had 5 pain blocks by my Pain Management doctor and they did not stop the shocking. A vascular surgeon checked blood flow in lower legs and found blood circulation was perfect. What cause this and how do I get it treated?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

While setting I get a little relief but not much. My legs do swell but this is due to small leaks in small vines in my legs. This swelling is controlled by wearing compression hoses but they do not help the shocking.

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

I have had 4 back surgeries in past 8 years. That was reason for the pain blocks, but as previously stated they did not help.

It is likely coming from your back

I suspect you have spinal stenosis

I'm very sorry you are suffering

is this helpful?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have spinal stenosis and have for past 15 years. However, my neurology said that is not where the shocking is from. This only confirms what I already knew and does not tell me how to get rid of the shocking.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

I disagree.

it is coming from the spinal stenosis

you will likely need surgery again

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.
