Kindly answer to these questions, this will help me in gathering additional information related to your health concerns;

1) How old are you?

2) What are your current treatments? And what are the treatments you have already tried other than your current treatments?

Please try to mention all those treatments you might have already tried (medications & non-medication treatments, everything) so that I do not recommend those same treatments that you have already tried. If you could give me the list of all the treatments that you have already tried it will help me to recommend something new that you have not already tried

3) Are you having any difficulties with controlling the bowel and the bladder?

Kindly reply

This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are in such pain.

we can't access your medical records number. that is against privacy and HIPAA laws.

we are here to answer medical questions.

we can not give out prescriptions for clients here

you need to see a pain management doctor and talk about a spinal nerve electrical stimulator implant to see if that can help decrease your pain

do you live in a state where medical marijuana is legal? this could help decrease your pain.

you have to accept additional phone consult services if you would like to talk by phone today.

MY MAJOR CONCERN IS LOSING FUNCTION OF MY LEGS I HAVE AIWAYS HAD NUMBNESS AND TINGLING IN MY RIGHT LEG SINCE 2002
NOW SINCE THE ABLATION IT HAS BECOME WORSE
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

well, a nerve ablation can cause worse numbness and weakness in your legs.

your doctors should have advised you about this potential risk with a nerve ablation.

have you consulted with pain management doctors before about the pain in your back
