L5 Foraminal Stenosis - Treatment?

I am looking for treatment options (non-surgical) for numbness in the legs - but no pain in the legs.

A member recommended nerve pain medication - does this help with numbness as well? I would love to hear people's experiences - what worked, what didn't, what I should stay away from.

Thanks! ;)


  • I am not a doc but really have to wonder about the nerve pain meds. My personal experience with the nerve pain meds are they tend to make me numb but do help the pain. I would really have to wonder if they would help. Have you had any suggestions from doc at all?
