The leg cramp would lead to a spasm at night and wake him up several times at night. Numbness is also felt in his arms at night.

Thank  you for the treatment. I came into your surgery an old man could not walk because I ached so much. The acupuncture treatment you gave was fabulous, I became a new person.
