I have a pinched nerve 3months back and I went to have it xray and the doctor says it seems alright and then I went to chinese traditional doctor they did acupunture and I feel the pain is gone for awhile and the pain is back again for another 2-3days and it totally recovered. Now, the pinched nerve pain in my left feet is back again and I am so afraid that I might not able to walk again. This time the pain is worst when I walked. Is like electric shock to my nerve. Can anybody tell me what is it or can you please advise me if you have ever came across such problem? Will it become a permanent problem? I do not have any back pain when my foot starts the pain.
