    it could be a sign that u are starting to heal…..i cant say for sure…….what the doctor said? maybe you’re nerves are regenerating.

    I have been having the same pain, same location for past 2 weeks. Told my pain management doctor about it and he told me it was PLANTAR FACILITIS and it is quite common in people that suffer from autoimmune diseases such as lupus, graves disease, etc.

    He recommended using a tennis ball and rolling my feet over it to “break up” the nerve endings and it seems to be working. My feet hurt all day, not just in the morning.

    Go to COFWA website and read it and maybe you can find out if you have more of the symptoms, I have had 3 back surgeries and on 1 of my suergies my surgeon cut into my spinal cord and blood leaked into the CFS fluid and caused me to have Arachnoiditis and one od the symptoms is the feeling of walking on glass and burning pain their several to mention but its a debilitating chronic pain disorder , Im not saying thats what you have god I hope not I would want that on my worst emeny but maybe u can check it out many of us go through many year trying to a diagnoisis because not many doctors know the disease its rare!! You can read the website and maybe if you have other symptoms , it would help figure whats going! Hope u find whats going on soon!

    something is probably wrong with your nerve endings. I would highly highly recommend you go see a nurologist.

    It sounds like some pinched nerves to me also.
    Make certain that all of your blood work is up to date because Type 2 diabetes can also produce similar symptoms in the feet. You may have two things working against you here.
    Some of the RLS meds might also work well for you, but make certain that your pharmacist check for drug interactions with your other meds first, especially your narcotics.

    Many of the meds you are on, often deplete the body of one nutrient or another. Regardless of the meds you’re on, you should also be taking a high quality multivitamin each day. Make certain also that your fluid intake is what it should be. If your urine output is more than slightly yellow, then push more water.

    this is personal advice, not medical advice

    not really unusual with that level of damage. however, that can indicate a change in your nervous system, and considering yoru other issues, you would do well to bring this issue up with your physician

    Do you have neuropathy? Nerve pain is a killer. I’d go to your doctor. Some other causes could be plantar fascitis or stress fractures in your feet. Lots of things it could be. Would go ASAP because they have meds that can help with nerve pain.

    With your medical history, you really should see a doctor. It could be an infection, a sign of the nerve damage, tendonitis, who knows? Better not to take a chance. With so much morphine, you may have even broken some bones and just don’t know it yet.

    umm you should see a dermatologist about that becuase they “know everythig about skin” they will give you some treatments
    and
    you should go to cvs becuase there is this file thing its used to file off dead skin you should try it though

    Oh my goodness, what a rough situation. I think you should definitely see a neurologist and if you’re already seeing one, get another opinion! I will pray that you will find an answer to your problem! God bless you.

    most likely nerve damage.

    my father-n-law has this happen to him on occasion. It is called gout.

    An ancient disease, gout is a chronic type of inflammatory arthritis that causes immediate attacks of pain, tenderness, redness, warmth and swelling in some joints. Usually, the joints in the big toe are affected, but gout can also affect the instep, ankles, heels, knees, wrists, fingers and elbows.

    Gout is caused when there is over production of uric acid in normal purine metabolism in the body. Genetics can play a role in who develops gout. It can also occur as a complication of other conditions. Some people inherit the inability to process uric acid and lose it in the urine. High blood levels of uric acid in turn causes sodium monourate crystals to collect in the joint fluid and joint coverings leading to gout, a painful stiff swollen joint.

    So sorry for your pain. Hope this helps.

    I used to think it was a lack of circulation, but it’s most likely the nerves in your back being pinched. I had 2 pinched nerves and the same problems you’re talking about and more.

    I got some medicine prescribed and went to the chiropractor fro a while.
    But me being the person I am, stopped taking the medicine, stopped going to the chiropractor and forgot about my problem.

    I did however get a tempur-pedic matress topper and a core products theraputically designed pillow.

    never felt better. Also, make sure you relax every day for a couple minutes or so if you don’t already. Tense muscles will pull your spine all over the place.

    It could be a pin. I was sewing one day and i stepped on a sewing needle, I didn’t know it at the time, it had broken off in my toe..
    Just saying, maybe you could have step on something, and the skin grew over it. I’m not telling you to cut into it yourself and see, but i did with my own toe and found the either half.

    Lots of peroxide, rubbing alcohol and you already are numbed up.

    Here’s the deal…you probably have Plantar Fasciitis, due to the fact you have had to change the way you walk since your other injuries…the large muscle under your foot has micro-tears in it and is inflamed…that muscle relaxes at night, or if you are off your feet for any length of time…then it hurts like heck when you stretch it.
    I have it, and it does feel like the first few steps out of bed, I am walking on glass or tacks.
    It is a build up of Uric acid in the joints, which are sharp edged little fellers…taking Celebrex or other low level anti-inflammatory will usually help…and get an orthotic for your shoes to keep the arch of your foot supported…Check out the weblink I have so conveniently provided.

    You really need to consult with your physician on this one. If your physician is drawing blanks, I would ask for a referral. It sounds like you may have some nerve damage, and I know that nerve damage “can” go away, but it’s best to ask someone that is trained in this field.

    Good luck to you, and I’m sorry for your pain.

    Go back to your neurologist and ask them, it don’t sound right and you need professional help.
