I’m looking forward to my treatment for peripheral neuropathy

I’m looking forward to my treatment for peripheral neuropathy

I had a consultation today with Balanced Flow Neuropathy for treatment of peripheral neuropathy. I’ve been experiencing numbness and tingling in both feet for some time and enough is enough.

Actually, my dad put the fire under me to get it checked out. I guess he got tired of me telling him the same thing every time he asks me how I’m doing. I would tell him of course that my feet are numb and he wonders if there is something that can be done about it.

My primary care doctor says the neuropathy stems from my lupus and there’s nothing that can be done. Meanwhile I’m suffering day to day physically and of course when something affects you physically your quality of life is threatened.

The team at Balanced Flow Neuropathy so far are caring and that showed during my consultation. I was so excited as they explained my treatment plan that I was hoping they could start treatment the same day.

One drawback however is I get around by using a rollator walker and while there is an elevator I have to climb up stairs to get to the elevator. It’s going to be a struggle getting my walker up the stairs without help. I’m sure all this will come to pass when I won’t need my walker which is my main goal in addition to walking again normally.
