Does anyone have advice for dealing with a trapped Saphenous nerve. I have a numb patch on the inside of my calf and occasional stabbing pain from above the knee down to the same area. The neuro-consultant diagnosed the problem but seems at a loss to know how to fix it (he tells me it's quite rare), suggesting I see a neuro-surgeon for a possible op. I'd prefer to try something less invasive. Rubbing the likely entrapment point (adductor channel above the knee) seems to make it worse. This has been a problem for about 6 months. Any ideas welcome.
