About

Bio

I practice pain medicine because it allows me to personalize treatment options to offer meaningful functional pain relief. This keeps me conscious of the brain's ability for positive adaptability. Thus the rewards of varied therapeutics on patients allow for less distress about the reality of medical business. I live in a small coastal town, so neighbors are patients. The gap is still being bridged between doing specialized injections one day and participating in local theater and boating on another. I have always used humor to get through, when the kids come home we spend the first days laughing at life!! Born a woman, will die a doctor.

May be unrelated: Calcium deposits in the intervertebral discs are usually a sign of degenerative changes in the structure of the disc. They do not produce pain, Sometimes the calcium can multiply and cause disc herniation. This causes nerve pain and would require treatment. Primarily this is a chronic degenerative change. For severe symptoms see your doctor

Twitching can be: due to pain. Trigeminal neuralgia produces severe multiple episodes of facial pain. Often muscle twitching can be seen as a result of the pain, including the muscles of the eyelid.

Sitting and nerves: This sounds like nerve pain. Neurological problems like the spinal nerves getting compressed in the lumbo-sacral region or from pressure on the sciatic notch can cause this. Also sitting can cause pressure on the leg nerves. try getting up and moving around. Problems of the feet like nerve intrapment or planter fasciitis may cause this. Have a doc exam.
