Severe Burning Feet, Back and Neck Pain
My name is John L. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in September, 2009 because I was suffering from burning and sharp stinging pain in my feet. For 36 years my feet have felt like they were on fire… like I had gotten stung by a dozen bees. At times, in addition to the burning pains, there were also severe shooting pains in my feet. It was difficult for me to stand or walk for a reasonable period of time and when I did stand or walk the pain went all the way up into my hips. The years of pain made me feel depressed and hopeless.
I tried medications, prescription creams, and ointments. I went to dermatologists and orthopedic foot specialists, but nothing helped to relieve the pain. After a while the doctors told me there was nothing they could do for me. After three treatments at Abundance Acupuncture I began to feel significant improvements in the pain in my feet. At this point in time my condition feels 90% better. I no longer feel the continuous burning and stinging anymore and I am able to stand longer and walk further with out pain in my feet. Even the pain in my hips no longer bothers me.
I have also had significant improvement in the severe back and neck pain that I have had for 19 years, during which I had three lower back surgeries and three neck surgeries. When I started acupuncture treatments the pain level on my lower back was between level 7 and 8 and my neck was always about a level 5 or 6. Now my back pain is down to level 3 and the neck pain is around 3 or 4.
The clinic is wonderful and the staff is professional and caring. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who is suffering from pain because it has helped me considerably, gotten me back on my feet again, and reenergized my life. I was very skeptical at first because I had been to so many different doctors without getting any help. My wife mentioned acupuncture and I said to myself “What do I have to lose?” I had tried everything else and I was desperate for help. I went in with a positive attitude and now I can’t believe how significant the improvement in my symptoms have been. Thanks!
