I get pain like this all the time in my legs and feet. Just a bit of movement and it is really painful.

I really want to try acupuncture, as many have good results.

But, the NHS leaflet I have says it's up to you as there is no medical reason why it would work. Which is odd really.


Ah, good point about the eastern thing.

As I say, I might try it for my IBS, I really want to relieve stress as I think that will really help.

As I get stressed over the simplest things like going to the loo, I get scared of what might happen. So, will look into it and also am going back to the doctors too.

Thanks :)


Yours is where mine is. My daughter's also . Hers was undiagnosed diverticulitis. She's cured it through diet and exercise. Mine is PD related IBS-C some probiotics help but most helpful is LOW FODMOPS diet and physical therapy specializing in abdominal pain.
