Tingling and Numbness in Your Feet Making it Difficult to Sleep

"Hi, my name is Helen, and I’m 81 years old, and I came to see Dr. Silvester about my neuropathy. The pain in my feet started out in both hands and it used to wake me up at night. I couldn’t sleep. I didn’t get any sleep because it hurt so bad. I had nightmares about it. Gradually, I had numbness in my feet and had to lie on my back, and just the pressure of the sheet over my toes would cause a lot of pressure and a lot of pain and so I had to twist my body to get my feet away from under the sheets so that I could sleep, but of course that’s a very uncomfortable position.

So, that didn’t last for very long. I’d be awake, just trying to find a comfortable position where my toes wouldn’t hurt under the pressure of the sheet. Other than that, I came to the doctor and explained to him what I had, what kind of problem I had, and he suggested some supplements and I took them the very same day when I went home. I got results in 24-48 hours. I couldn’t believe it. I actually got a good night’s sleep and I didn’t have any pressure on my toes anymore. No pain. Now I can sleep on my back without a problem. That’s why I came today, I could hardly wait! I wanted to call him and tell him, ‘Hey, it worked!’

He is very nice. He’s the best doctor. I wish I had him all my life, because when I have a problem, he takes care of it. When I hurt myself, when I have a rash that I can’t handle, I go up there and he sends me to a dermatologist. He even accompanied me to see the doctor. How about that? I thought that was really neat. I am so grateful. I’m very thankful that the doctor did help me with that. I really am, this is the truth.

The doctor - I’m part of his club! He tells me that I’m in the, I forget - it was a nice word for old people. He says all of the older people who are 80 and up, he said that he has a patient who’s 95 and he’s still in good health and says, ‘You’re right up there with him!’ and I said, ‘Wow! I’m a member of a club!’"
