Customer Question
I started getting sharp...

I started getting sharp nerve pain on right side of right foot two weeks ago. Last week I started getting the same pain on the ball of my left foot. My legs have been feeling numb the last 6 months. I'm 65, very active and take Tae Kwan Do 2 x a week, Wassup?

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

No swelling, turning my foot at an angle brings it on. I am on restless leg meds, Ropinirole

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

very likely this is coming from your back

the nerves travel down to the feet and can cause symptoms far away from the back

I think your back is wassup....LOL
