With no other answers in 3 weeks, I will give this a lame try. Have you had any physical therapy for your feet? I don't know, but PT helped me with severe pain in my arm after my stroke. Also what about Botox injections in your feet? I was alerted to botox injections to help with any leg pain that might develop after my stroke. Why not the feet? Also could you describe your tooth pain? Does it feel like stabbing, shooting or electric-like shocks? Maybe you have Burning Mouth Syndrome or Trigeminal Neuralgia which I got the latter after my stroke. Many doctors aren't familiar with these illnesses. Perhaps you could suggest these possibilities to your doctor.
