I am a 31 year old ex-dancer. Ex since i developed pins and needles in my right leg a year ago and i had to stop dancing. I have tried all manner of conservative treatment [physio, acupuncture, pilates, swimming, hydro theraphy] with no change. After a year i have to choose whether to accept the symptoms and try to get back to work or to have a micro-discectomy.
Has anyone else had this procedure for these types of symptoms [chronic pins and needles and numbness in the feet]?
And if so, how did it go?
I am really worried about making my symptoms worse as at present i am not in pain, but also i cannot accept that i will be like this forever.
Anyone got a similar story to tell?
I would love to hear it - i feel very isolated with this and can't quite gauge if i am crazy to be considering surgery,
get in touch
