anyone feel more burning/numbness when sitting

Posted by notborntoburn @notborntoburn, Jul 27, 2020

Hi I am getting beyond frustrated! Laying down puts my pain at 110% ,sitting in a chair puts the numbness and burning way over my threshold of pain. I can hardly sit at a table to write,eat,carry on a conversation,within minutes I question if my feet and calves actually look as painful as they feel! They look fine yet oh the nerves just go nuts firing in all directions with a bed of hot coals. I have been on every medication to to man,even some unknown! Thanks for your knowledge Marianne

I have small fiber peripheral polyneuropathy, and my feet very quickly hurt way worse when I sit or lie down. I haven't found out why that is. Today, in town for my wife's doctor appointment, my feet hurt around 5 when I walked through Costco, but sitting in the car waiting for my wife, they went to 7. I got a blanket and a bag of cushion stuff (to protect things we buy) from the trunk, to rest my feet on. It helped a little, but I have to keep changing my position. When we got home to my recliner, the pain level went up to 8 or 9. Part of the pain is a burning sensation, part is the feeling of being squeezed, some stabbing, and contact pain.

It's kind of strange that they hurt more, sitting or lying, than when walking. Standing still makes them hurt, too.

Do you have a diagnosis of why you have burning pain? Any medication that helps? My doctors – PCP, neurologists and pain specialist – have really worked with me to find a treatment for my sfn, with very little long term success. Some things have reduced the pain, but only for a few months. My spinal cord stimulator is the one thing that has given me significant relief. It's not doing much right now, but spinal stenosis may be interfering. I'll find out if that's true when I have back surgery in September, and to what extent it's interfering. Like you, I've tried every medication the doctors have prescribed.

Did the links John shared give you any helpful information? I hope you can find some answers to the cause and treatment of your pain.

Have you researched thiamine for your small fiber peripheral polyneuropathy? Also vitamin D may offer relief for the spinal stenosis along with boron. Both thiamine and vitamin D require sufficient magnesium for activation. A deficiency of active thiamine can be an overlooked cause for burning feet and peripheral neuropathy. As you search on "krispin magnesium" you'll find pain on the list of causes for magnesium. Search on " Is Thiamine Deficiency Destroying Your Digestive Health? Why B1 Is ESSENTIAL For Gut Function". Also research glutathione to reduce inflammation..

Hi Sunnyflower, I also have osteoporosis after done a calcium test and been recommended to take Saludynam's Calcium gluconate – link at bhbhealth dot com / products / saludynam This calcium is liquid and it doesn't cause kidney stones. Take 1 small cup (the bottle comes with it) before bed time, once a day. A bottle can last 1.5mth

Me too. Sitting down makes pain increase. When I stand up, it hurts a lot — I have to walk around to get limbered up. I feel best in the afternoons and evenings when I have been active all day. Waking up is the hardest. Most of the pain is those sensations of burning/stinging/numbness that we are familiar with. Some of it is aching from the beginnings of old age-related-arthritis.

I saw my orthopedist today — he said that we can take up to 3000 milligrams of Tylenol each day without damage to the liver. That's nice to know. I take 650 mg time release caplets. I didn't know that I could take more. I'll try it. Peggy

Hi Peggy, I have never, ever heard that it is safe to take that amount of Tylenol. I know that liver is Best Buy a Tylenol is a very slow painful death. Not trying to scare you at all just wanting you to be sure you are safe.

Ooops, did not mean to send that because I had not added to that yet. What I meant to say is that Tylenol overdose is a very slow painful death. Just want you to be safe. Take care of, Sunny

Doctors I have seen pedal large doses of Tylenol. What does a slow painful death mean? I wouldn’t do it since Tylenol does nothing for my pain but I am a curious little bugger.

bustrbrwn22, this link describes overdose information. Intravenous N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is used for overdose. My wife uses 600 mg of NAC three times a day during high level use of Tylenol.

Thank you all. The bottle says "Do not take more than 6 caplets in 24 hours." The caplets are 650 mg. each. Isn't that 3900 mg. a day? I will do more research into "safe" amounts of Tylenol. Peggy

I think I am wrong. I am shocked that this high dose is safe. This has to be newer info, at least it is to me. I can use higher doses but have had an aversion to taking more than two, 650mg. every 8 hours for years bc I know how painful and slow it can be to die from liver toxicity from too much Tylenol.
