still not well

I've lost so much weight that sitting in the bleachers for that baseball game today was a little bit like Chinese torture. My bony shanks just couldn't get comfortable there. I worked up a generous crick in my ass, then went to stand by the fence to relieve some of the pressure.

I was doing fine until both feet went numb. This time, it wasn't just in the toes. The numb, tingling feeling went clear up to my ankles. I walked around a while and I felt as if I were striding on the bottom of my shinbones. I couldn't feel my feet. I thought, "Oh, shit. What's happening now?" I'm kinda gun-shy after some of what I've been through lately.

The feeling came back after a while and I was able to walk to my truck and drive home when the game was over. Now, I can feel my feet, but I can't feel my toes. That's better than I was for a while there.

I don't think I'm long for this world.

Shit! I've felt like that for 15 years. Bulging disk. Can't feel anything in the front half of both feet. You'll be alright.

Hey MORON, you are pathetic. Read the story of this 18 year old girl, who got AIDS when she did her first porn movie. Just click on my name. It's the first post on my blog. Then tell me if you are a whining little BITCh or not.

PS. The black porn actor that gave this poor little girl AIDS got it in the Caribbean. You were saying you were going to vacation down south. Watch it or your feet won't be the only thing going numb or falling off.

I've never posted before but I think the last comment requires my insight. This girl got AIDS because she was in a porno, selling herself and her dignity for money. That's a bad choice, and if she has to pay for that choice, that's what she has to do. It's sad, sure, but it was a result of HER choice, not anyone elses.

People are odd. Why don't you go spend your damn time somewhere else Ricky? People are allowed to whine and bitch all they want. This is a personal site. If you don't like it , LEAVE. But I know that's hard to do because you think you are impressing people with your bullshit.

Anyhow Acidman even though you had pain and all I bet it was worth it just to see your boy once again.

I've had numbness in my calf for a year now. Ruptured disk ruined nerves in my left leg. Luckly I got my feeling back in foot but not in my calf. Oh well. You get used to it.

Your neuropathy will diminish to nothing in a few months if you stay off the booze. If you don't, your pancreas and then your liver will die off, and that ain't fun (or for your loved ones to watch).

I'm new here, but what exactly is wrong? Some of the people in comments keep talking about a ruptured disc... if it's neuropathy (which is only the type of pain), what is the origination of the neuropathy, and what treatment methods (I'm sure there's a whole list) have you been through.

Are you a candidate for spinal cord stimulation?

Some of the neuropathy has to do with your weight loss. Nerves, formerly afforded some protection by muscle and fat, are now more directly exposed to pressure when you do things like sit, squat, etc. They get stunned or "pinched" and take feeling with it. If you avoid the situations where they get pressured (like sitting on bleachers or having sex on the hood of your truck) until some of the padding comes back, you should be OK.

I'm going thru something similar. I lost 30 lbs (about 15% of my body weight), back to a weight I haven't been in 15 years, and developed stuff like this.

That's the best news I've heard all day. A racist, homophobic asshole in pain! and dying! Hoorah!

Hey Sixfootdickhead,
I see you have a blog but do not allow entries. Talk about a pussy. Why don't you take your yankee ass out on one of your lakes and throw yourself in. Hell, that won't work , shit floats.
