Neuropathy

Neuropathy

Does anyone else have neuropathy in their feet? If so, what do you do to get rid of the pain & burning? I'm going nuts!!

I have neuropathy in my feet and have had it for many years. I take Gabapentin which does help (have been on it for years) but with the colder weather I am finding the pain in my feet is harder to bear.

I went to podiatrist yesterday. He said he doesn't think I have neuropathy because the tingling is not in my toes. He thinks I have damaged nerves in my ankles. Got 2 injections on inside of both ankles. Steroid one short term & one 5-8 days. He wanted to see if this solves the problem & if it does he said he can fix the nerves. So am hopeful. The pain is some less than before injections so will see what the next week brings. Hope this helps some of you - maybe you have nerve damage also - worth getting it checked. I've suffered for many years thinking it was just fm.

By the way, heat makes my pain worse so rarely wear socks at night.
