My Feet Are So Bad - I Can Walk For 4-8 Mins Then The Pain Is So Strong That I Have To Get Them Up And Apply Heat.

My Feet Are So Bad - I Can Walk For 4-8 Mins Then The Pain Is So Strong That I Have To Get Them Up And Apply Heat.

My feet have never hurt this bad before. it's paralyzing. Couple years ago my knees and hips are so bad I had to get around on electric scooter but not my feet. I recently had a break out in a rash on my face I just wonder if this has something to do with my feet hurting now. anyone have anything like this?

I can relate to you as I have peripheral neuropathy in my feet very bad. I can't take any of the drugs used to treat it so I researched some alternate remedies:
1. Lavender & Peppermint essential oils mixed with a carrier oil, like almond oil. Massage on your feet every night or as often as needed. I buy mine from Edens's Garden.
2. Alpha Lipoic Acid (Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators) mg daily. Vitamin B12 500mg daily, Omega-3 fish oil 1,000 mg daily, Evening Primrose Oil 360 mg daily. I am getting "some" relief. Not 100% but definitely could tell a difference. Been on this regime for a month now.

I went though this as well. I recommend getting a foot bath massager, using warm water with epsom salt, once done, applying lotion to your feet and placing warm socks, and wearing supportive shoes, doing this 2x/day for a couple of days. It has helped me, I am also taking 600mg Gabapentin at bedtime.

Peripheral Neuropathy can be treated with infusions of Intravenous GammaGlobulin - talk to your neurologist.

Yes! Constant pain in feet. DR diagnosed it as peripheral neuropathy based on my symptoms. (No rashes though)
