Nan,
Thank you so much, through my tears, I told my wife what you said.
She also says thank you very much, even though your kind words made her hubby cry. :)

The doctors have no idea why her right leg is always numb and hard to walk with. She has had every test the can think of but haven’t found a cause.

There is so much feeling of guilt with chronic pain, feelings of being a burden, add to that not having a definite diagnosis and treatment plan. My heart goes out to your wife I hope her doctors are able to determine something soon. I can relate to her situation.

Have they MRIed her lower lumbar? Obvious cause would be slipped disc, stenosis, compressing a nerve root, but other factors that a MRI would not pick up on is muscle spasms, or lower back muscle inflammation irritating the nerve root. Does she find it harder to walk down stairs than to walk upstairs?

Re-leaf will not discuss anything medical over the phone, it would be a liability for them to be perceived as giving medical advice. What they do is have a web form for having them pick strain for you. You describe them the problem mention strains that have been helpful from what vendor and mention the problem about feeling too woozy.


Thank you Nan.
She has had the whole battery of tests. MRI, CT, EMG, X-ray, blood tests...
She's tried massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture and gets a little temporary relief from them.

Yesterday I was on the phone with BCBS to see if they could get her Neurologist to give her an appointment right away. They neuro office originally said the earliest they could give here was august. After BCBS spoke with them they said june. I got a little angry and frustrated then. I prayed then because it calms me down. Then I did a search for neurologists in my area and the first one that popped up was the one who did the emergency surgery on my neck when I had 2 disks rupture and I was losing the use of my right arm.
I don't know why I didn't think of him. I called his office and my wife now has an appointment for Monday at 9:45am. I was so happy and relieved about that I started crying in work.

You Never can have Enough Kratom in my Opinion. It's much better to have way too Much than way too Little.:-?
