<quoted text>I have numbness in my right leg,like from my knee down..Off and on but I still drive.Was told I could end up not walking.I was told this in 1990 by another doctor.The numbness just happened some months ago.I climb on laddle but with caution.Clean walls and paint when I can...What kind of test did they do?..I talked to a lady lately at a store and she was telling me about a test where they place a needle down into the nerve on her leg and tell her to wriggle here foot.It hurts and say never will she to that again.The doctor told her they only do this test 1 time.There are several tests the doctor wanted to do on me and I told them I would pass for now...I have said I can relate to many here on topix/ob....By the way I'm 56 soon be 57...
I had a NERVE CONDUCTION test. Various electrodes to read the speed signals travel from brain to muscles. If below normal speed,then nerves are not receiving those brain signals or being blocked/restricted before signal reaches area you move. I had the test twice. 12 years ago was the first-needles stuck in the skin. Second test last summer. This time no needles-electrodes placed on skin surface.

<quoted text>I'm not in a wheelchair.Never had.But sometimes it is hard to walk.I have to keep going for I only have me to depend on.My legs would swell so bad they look like they would bust.I believe most of that was from a blood pressure medicine.I've had this doctor now take me off it.Had to go slowly for it could cause a heart attack.Leg still swell some,sometimes but nothing like they use to.I've been thinking about the other test but I don't know.I would have to ask what kind and how they do them before I will have it done...and still not sure if I would.My doctor now is one who does for jobs..but he is my primary doctor.
you do like I. Keep working on tasks. I won't give in to it. Only way I'll stop is if I have no choice. I keep going till I can't do more. Like early this month installing grab bars in that seniors bathroom. I litterally could'nt make my arm work! I did 2 grab bars 2 anchored screws at each end. That's 8 wall anchors the 8th was almost not finished. Supposed to be 16. He's light weight and those bars were strong enough with what I managed. 3 days later assembled an exercise bike for him.

<quoted text> I don't want to be a downer for this forum. I don't want to unload problems to those here. I'll be out of a home by june. Mostly just stating my position for sake of conversation/subjects and knowing me. Golden years unlikly to happen. Only S.S. I been on since age 46. So nothing else into S.S. for any retirement. So I thought maybe somone else here in similar situation. Going to rhuematologist tuesday-a monthly appt. Have trouble with some leg swelling and feel like lead weights even after a nights sleep. Helping that senior has taken a toll on me. Did'nt go to his home 3 days. Does have a relative on weekends. Besides osteoarthritis the other 2 ailments-neuropathy+raynauds affect nervous system. Bursitis and G.E.R.D. reflux also. Been up 3hrs and feels like I worked hard all day! How about you or anyone you know with same things?
You are no problematic to any one. If you keep quiet about any problem you will never know the solution. Allopathic medicine have no cure for it but look for other systems to cure you. There is cure for your ailment and you don't have to suffer any more. Try through diet, Ayurveda, Chinese or herbal. They are much much cheeper and are wholistic cure. Allopathic(doctors) are only here for 100 years or so but the other systems been here for thousands of years. There is cure for every thing as long as you look for it. Don't suffer in silence.

I got a bit of humor ...

If my body were a car,this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model.
I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull...but that's not the worst of it.My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close.My traction is not as graceful as it once was.I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.My fuel rate burns inefficiently but here's the worst of it..almost ever time I sneeze cough or sputter either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!!!!......Hope you liked..

That is funny. Yet how machines can be similar. I used an auto analogy to explain a soul in a body. The soul is in a new car. After awhile gets "broken in". Then goof for a number of years. Begins to neef more and more trips to auto repair. Then when beyond repair get out and into another new car. This I said about the soul and the body it inhabits.

I heard of similar treatments. Have'nt seen any listed. I do eat chinese and herbals just not doing either much. These other treatments greatly downplayed by AMA.

I absotuely angry at those ads. Sometimes they pop up just as I'm about to click "post comment"and the ad comes on instead. I sent a message to Topix about it last month. I called one ad to complain about the interferring ad and was told Topix decides were those ads come on. Even when I hit the X of the ad it comes right back on.
