@johnbishop Thank you John. I am doing water therapy and it helps at least for a while in the water. Right now it is difficult with their scheduling but so fortunate that they are allowed to be open for physical therapy. This numbness is bad as you know. Half the time I don't know if I have socks on and how high they are. I always feel like I have heavy boots on that go up to my knee. There have been times when I looked down just to be sure I didn't have boots on. I will be going to your page and look at what you have done. Thanks again.

I don't mean to change up but I did not know where to ask. Does anyone have any tips on dealing with the numbness. My legs from the knees down are numb. So numb it is scary. I am a member of this group and have neuropathy. The numbness and heaviness are really doing a job on me mentally and physically.

@fiesty 76 Thank you. I was glad there weren't people in the waiting room. It just seemed eerie. Everywhere and everyone tells the story of our present situation. It is not bad when I am at home doing the usual at home things, but when I leave my safe place I am hit as to what is happening. I ordered carry out from a favorite restaurant on my way home. It was a place to sit down and enjoy good food and company. Today we had to park around back and my food was brought out to the car. The devastation will soon be felt. So sad. I pray this medication works. He prescribed Amox-Clav 875 mg. Pretty strong antibiotic. Will kill many infections. Guess the doctor thought why not treat the present problem and any other that may be in my body. This way I won't need to come back in. I will keep you posted. It is still a struggle with the neuropathy and lymphedema. I hurt for sure.

@merprep and fiesty 76 Thank you for responding so quickly. I did go to see the doctor. The waiting room was weird. No one in it. A few people came in while I was waiting. Well, fluid in one ear and apparently an infection in the other. This can be causing dizziness and awful sore throat. Strep test came back negative. I have a prescription for augmentin, recommended Flonase also. I will see if this helps. If not he will look further. His nurse told me they are not seeing any people with respiratory issues that may be part of the corona virus. These people are being told to stay in and go to ER if necessary. He said the corona virus is viral and there is not much to be done as with other viral viruses. Hospitalization is needed for some. Thank you again and let's keep this forum open. I admit I am frightened. not so much about the virus, but about people. We will destroy ourselves with selfishness, ignorance and hate . The toilet paper incidents is the beginning.

I have a question. I am not feeling well. I am not concerned about Corona being the cause. I am very dizzy even when sitting and having balance problems. I do have neuropathy which certainly influences my issues. I do not feel well and am concerned. I had a doctor's appt yesterday and I cancelled believing the threat of going to a doctor's office was more concerning. I woke up this morning and had difficulty getting from my bed to my dresser to hold on. This is the first time in years that I did not take a shower right after getting up. I had to sit for a bit, took medication and had a half cup of coffee. I then felt a little more stable and took a shower. My throat is sore. Anyhow I called back to the doctor and have an appt today which I will go to. Do we just put aside all other issues during this time and not leave the house. I live alone. My husband died 2 years ago. I am 74 years old. I am afraid that I will die from falling or other illness before the corona virus may hit me. Happy St PADDY'S Day. This will be one to remember.

Fri, Feb 7 12:43pm · Perineural or Tarlov cysts in Spine Health

@mar2a An MRI 6 months ago showed a Tarlov cyst. I have had back issues for years with several diagnosis. I also have peripheral neuropathy. Doctors have been treating my pain with pain pills, Gabapentin, etc. I asked about the Tarlov cyst causing these problems and was told no. I do not believe that. I am all ears.

@swartzki I am feeling your pain. It is an awful situation you are in. It is both physical and emotional. Please find a doctor who can help you. Pain from neuropathy is bad and often leaves us feeling vulnerable. It sounds like your husband (hopefully x very soon) feeds on that. While you seek a doctor also seek a GOOD LAWYER. Do not give up what you have and worked so hard for. Emotional pain triggers physical pain. Please do not give up.
