Pins and needles and pain in hands and feet

Posted by

Five years ago I was assaulted by being thrown on the ground. As a result I have paresthesia, (pins and needles) in both hands and feet all my waking hours. I take imipramine. This seems to have a little effect on blunting of pain, but not on the paresthesia.

My mri show a hernated disk 5/6 in my neck, pressing on the spinal cord but not compressing it. Other 6/7 disks were bulging but not so much. Has anyone had a similar experience or any treatment that worked. They tell me surgery is out. I have been very dissappointed with my treatment for this injury to date. Any information or fellow sufferer stories would be appreciated.

Prolotherapy can help with the herniated and buldging disks. This treatment strengthens the ligaments surrounding the disks and helps put them back in alignment. Your pins and needles is a direct result of nerve compression. Go to www.prolotherapy.com or complete a search for prolotherapy on the web and let us know what you learn.

Hi, Daniel.

Spend some time on the archives about spinal problems. If you have not seen a Chiropractor, see what Doc Kim has to say.

Since they are saying that surgery is "out" you really need to experience how much relief you would get from SR and/or Rolfing.

Let us know how you do.

Follow what Dr. Stoll says. I would suggest a chiropractic evaluation. Many times, chiropractic treatment to the cervical spine can be very beneficial in helping you to get rid of your symptoms.

I was thinking of chiropractic but I was also thinking that if a disk is herniated or buldging, getting adjusted may be risky. Do ya think? Rolfing, like you said, seems like the better option.

Hi Rich,

I have treated hundreds of patients with cervical disc bulges and herniations. At this point, we have only had to refer 5 or6 for surgery. These are ones that we could not help. We haven't had anyone get worse because of the care they recieved.

A bulge or herniation is not a contraindication for conservative chiropractic care.

Welcome back!

Doc Kim



Thanks for the clarification Doc. Kim. I will remember that the next time someone asks me. :) nmi
