Hope there is someone out there that can help me. I am a vet. U.S.Army so I have benefits with the VA. On Jan 24, 2011 I went in complaining of numbness in my left leg (upper part) The doctor did a pin test and then said in his opinion it looks like you have a pinched nerve, but he didn't take any other tests. It is now Feb. 14, 2011 and beside the numbness it throbs and burns like a blister. By the way I am 64 years old if that means anything. Thanks for reading. Dave

  • Go to chriopractor for pinched nerve. Do you have leg aches or pain when walking, if so its vascular, may need to be checked for clots in the leg.
