Default Frustration finding meralgia parenthetica treatment

Hello Neuro!

I am 62 and on disability for brain injury, ptsd, encephalopy. I also have some dimentias. For years I had numbness in left outer thigh. There was no pain, only persistent numbness.

In August 2016 I had vertigo and fell on my left side. That night I woke up screaming with burning pain. It was horrible but I walked a little and took some Tylenol and it went away. I had no more pain for a year then suddenly it happened again except after this episode, I began to have weekly pain and then several times a week.

I went to my neurologist who didn't seem to know anything about MP. She sent me to a physical therapist for nerve conduction assessment. I was told I had peripheral neuropathy which I have no symptoms of. Another doctor told me I had phantom limb when nothing showed on an x-ray. A physical therapist assured me he knew the treatment for MP, hydrotherapy. Not.

On Friday of last week I went to another physical therapist who moved my legs around trying to activate the nerve. I went there in a couple days for treatment and though I insisted treadmill is not treatment, they persisted in traditional therapy. That night I woke up in screaming pain. the next day I had pain during the day and then pain at night.

Two days later I was in Walmart and went into spasm and couldn't walk. I remembed a stretch from YouTube and put my leg on a display and stretched my thigh. The pain subsided but at night I have pain. I'm so angry that people do not know how to treat us and say they do. Two yoga moves, the half bridge and cat cow are highly effective as well as femoral nerve flossing.
