Any help

Aug 22, 2018 6:49 PM

Just in so much pain recently throbbing,shooting pain, burning, pins and needles, muscle twitches in my right foot I cant handle it on top of all the other pain I can’t think straight and I’m so anxious about the shooting pains they can be really embarrassing. Just need a distraction....

I don’t have any help but that is me every single day on top of the other pains and it’s four times worse at night.

I’ve tried the hard plantar fasciitis boots with and without compression long socks. I’ve tried strassburg socks. Neither really help and I can’t sleep with the hard boot.

The compression socks help a little bit maybe give them a shot?

I don’t know your other diagnoses, mine mostly have to do with nerve compressions in it seems like every single level of my spine, but this (or my arm pain which hasn’t happened lately due to ESI) keeps me up. I take a sleeping pill and 5 other RXs, but nothing touches this.

I am going to ask my pain management doctor at my appointment next week and my neurosurgeon the following. Maybe Aetna will finally allow surgery for my back before all this is permanent. It started around 2007.

JJack, is it gout? That is how my husband explains it.

JJack, I don't know what your diagnoses are or what you may be taking for them.

I do know many diagnoses share common symptoms. For instance, I have fibromyalgia, Sjogrens (affecting my joints now), spinal OA/DDD, and vein insufficiency, all which cause burning, tingling & neuropathy nerve pain in my legs especially. I also have hynocogic jerks in my legs & feet at night. I take gabapentin (only at bedtime due to being oversensitive to most medications), plaquenil, wear compression thigh highs, and elevating my legs when they're bothering me. Sometimes it doesn't help no matter what I try. I've noticed the more I'm on my feet, the worse my leg pain & foot pain is. Hugs love and prayers you can find out the cause and get some relief! 🙂❤🙏🌼
