      I had recently read an article on Dry Needling for MS patients with use electrical stimulation – advocating that there are positive results with this. I have an MS patient who consented to this – and the initial response was a sensation of burning in the lower leg – the area of DN with stim – and this is the response she has when she has increased inflammation with diet changes – does anyone have any experience with this ? I would be interested in hearing from you. Christine Urbom

      Hey Christine,

      Curious if you have tried additional sessions with this patient? Occasionally, you will get that sensation with ENS due to proximity to sensory nerves. So my first thought would be was it just coincidence. There is a relationship between the neurology of the gut/belly with legs and lower lumbar so there is a possible connection there but I would want to see if you moved the needles to a slightly different location in the same area if she had the same response.
