Treatment Ratings

    Mattress Change
    Not Improved
    Rest, Heat, Gokhale Method, Walking/Hiking,

My back has been the same since I am in contact with you. The sitting problem remains. The backpain on and off but not too bad.
My problem in the last 2-3 weeks has been increased neuropathy in my feet again. More tingling, some numbness in legs and now also more pain in big toes and burning in my feet.
