Connection between Neuropathy and L4,L5 Issues
I have been diagnosed with idiopathic PN by multiple Neurologists at Mayo, UNMC and Northwestern- the numbness runs from my knees to my feet with only occasional burning however it affects my balance and comfort.
I have also been diagnosed with degeneration of my L4 and L5 on my right side after years of intense physical activity led to 2 hip replacements.
I have started to notice that my PN becomes somewhat asymmetrical after certain core workouts I do to strengthen my core… is it possible that the L4/L5 issues are causing me to pinch nerves leading to my PN?
BTW- I was very happy with all of my doctors at each facility. Mayo in particular
Dr Dyke is fabulous
