Mr Lim K.KLow Back Pain
“Dear Dr Yeo, I am a Malaysian who has severe intractable pain in my left leg due to insufficient blood flow from blocked blood vessels. I was unable to go for any bypass surgery as I have extremely poor heart functions and had a few heart attacks. I can hardly walk for more than ten steps as my pain was excruciating.”
Mr Lee A.SIschemic Pain
“Dear Dr Yeo, Neuropathic pain in this patient with severe scarring of legs after an accident and skin grafts. This pain will only respond well to appropriate antineuropathic agents and topical agents. Conventional pain killers should be avoided as they do not help the patients but can give side effects.”
Mr Tan A.KNeuropathic Pain
“Dear Dr Yeo, I have been suffering in GREAT PAIN for the past 6 months. The SHARP PAIN started from my back, then it radiated to my right chest wall. The PAIN was really a torture! I simply cannot concentrate on my work & my emotion is greatly affected. NO doctor or pain killers work for me. I felt so helpless.”
