Well my pain is extremley bad at the minute and in the past couple of days. My legs are on fire!!๐Ÿ˜”

So I have taken to going outside in the sleet (smoking) barefooted on and off for the last 4 hours. Its at freezing here. Now my feet and legs are so numb I can hardly walk.. I've also taken tranquillizers, tramodol, weed and vodka in desperation to get some effffiiiiin relief..

Yes am now wobbling everywhere just to get a bit of respite. Its embarrassing. I have tried everything else in past couple of days, this is desperate. Yet now I have some peace, well a little anyway. Until my feet warm up.

Enough peace to write this to. Fingers crossed I get some sleep.. self indulent I know. But hey I may get in the naughty book?๐Ÿ˜‰.. I hope at least some of you are doing better. Gx

Grogg, I'm so sorry you're having a rough time. But you know I never thought about it... When my hands and feet are cold I can't feel the paresthesias! Have you tried placing cold gel packs under your feet so you don't have to keep walking outside? You could use frozen peas too. I hope you were able to get some sleep, and that you get some relief soon! Hugs love & prayers! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ

Where do you get wheat bags? I can make a rice bag. I'll have to see about a sock. My neck and shoulders hurt.

Tube socks are the perfect neck roll!
