numb foot

Hi my boyfriend is complaining about a numbness about 3 inches square on top of the arch on his right foot and a stiffness in the back of his knee. He is 6’3″ tall and has large, long feet -size 12-13. His socks are occasinally very tight. He wear out his heels on the outer side. I need to know what kind of a doctor he should see. We live in Mount Airy NC but we just movedhere and have no doctor yet. Thank you

Bulging disk, Scoliosis, pinched nerves

(3 discussions)

I am 32yrs old.
I have had back problems since I was 12. I was recently diagnosed with MRI and other test that I have a bulging disk in my neck, and two others beginning to pucker (as the doctor called it) in my lower back where I also have the presence of scoliosis (diagnosed at 9yrs of age) I was basically told there is nothing I can do outside of surgery (disk decompression) When the disk are irritated, inflamed or what ever is going on, it causes severe numbness in my left arm, the bone seems to be throbbing…and I can hardly hold anything(I am left handed so this is major handicap) Is there anything I can do that would aleviate the discomfort and help to speed up the recovery process?
