My condition began approximately 8 years ago when during the night I was awoken with severe contractions of my inner thigh muscle. Instantly I wanted to vomit. I attempted to get to the bathroom when I then passed out. Over the next six years the thigh condition increased from one incident every 3 months to a nightly occurrence. The passing out stopped as my body became used to the severe pain associated with the contractions.
Over the years my family MD sent me for MRIs, blood work, vascular testing- all coming back normal. The only advice I received was to place ice packs on the area when a contraction occurs. The ice packs worked to stop the contractions but did not help to eliminate contractions nightly.
It is impossible in writing to explain how these nightly contractions affected my life, from the simple daily activities that had to be timed and structured not to bring on daytime cramps- to the extreme measures of going to part- time work from full time employment and little things like having a manicure and a pedicure on separate days, not wearing sandals, not being able to walk your dog.
Dr. Kaplan’s neural prolotherapy has giving me back my life, after two months of having prolotherapy. I can now sit pain free, walk 1-2 miles daily and have a manicure-pedicure at the same appointment. I can now sleep through the night with no contractions all because of his neural prolotherapy techniques. I AM SMILING!!!!
