I have fibromyalgia and neuropathy in my legs which they say is from
sarcoidosis, have had 8 spinal surgeries so who knows. Getting hard to
walk!! Briansr

@johnbishop I looked into the oils (as most of you know, when you’re in pain you look into everything). Please let us know if the oils helped and what oils you used. I will try anything and everything to get off these opiate pain killers. I think they’re doing harm to the rest of my health.

About 10 years ago, I began feeling “funny” sensations in my feet. I
notified my dr. who used a small instrument to poke at toes/feet asking
“can you feel that?” Yup, I could feel it so he said it was probably okay.
It continued. Five years later, I developed cancer and underwent chemo for
6 months and some radiation. Now, I have a full-blown case of neuropathy
that extends from feet up to ankles but it is a different than the *lack of
feeling* type – I feel everything. I can’t stand on my bathmat because it
hurts – how odd is that? Feet and ankles feel as though they are tightly
bound much as if you’d wrapped duct tape tightly around feet and ankles
many times. If my feet become too warm, they itch and there are frequent
jabs of severe pain. Ankles swell by bedtime. So, before I go to bed at
night, I stand on the cold garage floor for a few minutes to be sure the
feet are cold enough to allow me to get some sleep. I take no pain meds
(other than acetomenaphin) but take warfarin for a blood clot. I’m 80
years old and have heard horror stories about the testing that is done to
determine extent of nerve damage and am not in a mood to experience further
discomfort unless something really can be accomplished. So far, the best
therapy I’ve found is to keep your feet cool and apply a good foot cream
both AM and PM. Just a note

Mary so sorry that happened to you hope you I’ll find something in these posts that will help you. I have already received some suggestions to try. Good luck

Yes I am sure it is getting hard to walk since the neuropathy also makes legs unsteady and with fibromyalgia just adds to the problem. I wish you to find something in these posts to help you.
