Foot and leg pain
DianaFaye posted:
I do not have diabetes, but I suffer severe leg and foot pain. The bottoms of my feet are so painful, that it feels like I am walking on broken glass. I am now on a heavy dose of hydrocodone, four times daily, but it only has a minimal effect. My numbers indicate that I am a healthy person but I have pain whether I am active or still, 24 hours a day.

My mother has the same problem; the reason she experiences the pain is because she has heel spur. A heel spur is a hook of bone that forms on the bone at the back of the foot. Heel spurs cause pain on the bottom of the foot. It is normal for the pain to sometimes affect the leg (that's what her doctor told her). The pain will get so severe that she has to stay off her foot for weeks. he doctor will prescribe hydrocodone or 800mg Ibuprofen to her. There are many ways to treat it. A doctor can give you a series of shots or they will do surgery. I am in no way a doctor so I am not saying that that's what you have but you could ask your doctor about it.

I read almost all posts, I think there is not a big issue. but if you shall not care about it then it shall must become a big one. Any way, all of you must check foot specialist and must follow the advice of him. Thanks for sharing...

Stay off Neurotin & Lyrica both can cause serve physiologic issues. Both of these drug have nearly cost me my marriage & job. The depression they cause in me almost had me killing myself. These are very dangerous drugs!!
