Peripheral Neuropathy Patient Reviews Bellevue Chiropractor
Hello I am Dwight Altenburg I'm a 62 yearold male and I had a background of pain symptomsmy feet for the last 10 years. I didn'trealize that the pains would be so long going and sustaining so I dismissed them and blamingthings such as the wearing heavy boots shoes that I wore through my occupation of workingfor the fire department for the last 40 years. The pain was worsethe evenings, it washot, very tingling, but I used to try to dismiss it. My wife would say to put ice packs onmy feet. And I said that I tried that but I doesn't help. So I started reading aboutsome of the foot symptoms and the sort of pain that was causedthe feet and I hadno idea that it was Peripheral Neuropathy.
I read that Peripheral Neuropathy can be relatedto diabetes. I was diagnosed with diabetes 7 years ago. I went to the medical sand was put on mediions for 6 months andthat time I opped at least 57 lbs. Istarted to exercise and it all seemed to help a little. I would play with my nutrition anddiet trying different things. I tried low carbohyates, I went and got eduionalclasses from Evergreen , I really became serious about wanting to improve myhealth so that I would be around for my grandchilen. I had gotten really scared about some of thesymptoms that diabetes can cause and I didn't want to have that so I decided to give mybest go. The painmy feet seemed to improve
after losing the weight, for at least a coupleof years, but I started to notice it more again as I started to exercise. It seemedthat the exercises I was doing, walking or riding a bicycle might play into it but whenI was away from those exercises for a week or so it didn't seem to go away any more.I received an adsthe Newspaper about neuropathy and how the Bellevue Pain could alleviatethe symptoms. I identified with those symptoms that were occurring to me and wanted to tryand stop this and nip thisthe butt like I did with my diabetes. So
I went through this pain program of Polzin's. I went through 10 weeks and I would say that my feet have returned toat least 90% normal feeling. I can feel my foot on the gas al again. I can feel hotand cold differences more so than other parts of my body. The prickling and so forth hasgone away. At night I used to have to sleep with the covers and blankets pulled up offmy feet so they wouldn't affect them. It was just so annoying that it would take meso much longer to fall asleep. Now I'm finding that it doesn't bother me when the sheetsare touching my feet and I do not have to put my feet outside of the covers. I'm feelingmuch more of an improvementall those areas.
I'm feeling very happy for it and I'mvery happy that I came to the Bellevue Pain Institute. I look forward to the home upkeep.I hope that others will be able to do this and be successful at it as well.
