I am hoping that someone can direct me to information or services regarding health care for expats. I am an American in Lisbon without a residence permit. I have been experiencing nerve pains throughout my whole body for the past couple of months. I was in the middle of receiving care for these pains in California but recently relocated to Lisbon. The pain is concentrated in my hips, knees, and low back. I am also experiencing sciatic pains. I was in a bicycle accident about a year and a half ago and fell on my right side where the pain is radiating from. I had an MRI of my spine and everything seemed normal except a few muscle spasms.
Does anyone have any experience with pain of this sort? Any recommendations for chiropractors or acupuncturists in the area? I am also interested in knowing affordable health care options for non residents.
