Hi everybody, it's been interesting reading how everybody deals with this very frustrating condition we all suffer from. I like everyone else have been do I g all the massage and moisturizing and indeed this is an on going thing, however, on a visit to my acupuncturist a few weeks ago for some needles in my back I was showing her my legs she immediately put just 3 needles in my each of my legs and said that will help an by billyio it did. For about 4 days there was minimum pain and irritation and far less swelling thus making life a lot easier. Oh and my back is good too. I must state however this lady is Chinese trained and that it suits me and helps me to cope but I just thought I'd share it.
