    Hi, i am suffering with sciatica that i know of never been diagnosed but have seen a doc for it. also i have these hard lumps on my top of my 1st and 2nd metatarsal which causes so much pain i cant hardly walk. and in my wrists below where my thumb connects to my hand is another hard lump. I dont know what to do , the doc seems to think im drug seeking, but i m not just want relief and explanation why this is happening.

    Why do you think the doctor thinks you are a drug seeker? Did you ask for a specific medication? What did the doctor say about your symptoms?
