Compound Rx Meloxicam, Lidocaine, Prilocaine, Gabapentin effects..
I'm about to try the compound listed in the title on my Erythromelalgia and SFN feet.. We are trying this in hope that it will allow me to be on my feet long enough to go shopping now and then.. I just finished using Frankincense and Myrrh Neuropathy cream for a month, and while it helped so much I am still looking for something that does even more.. My husband is constantly searching for anything to get me back to normal.. Bless his heart..

Good luck with your compounding cream. My neuro doc ordered some for my severe foot neuropathy, but while it helped, it also stiffened the foot tissue. I am already very stiff from the neuropathy, and did not want more! So it helped pain, but stiffened the tissue. I use a CBD salve that is much better. So much trial and error. The compounding cream was 300 bucks, and the cbd salve is 25 bucks. The cbd is much better. Go figure!!!! I hope your compounding cream really helps!!!! Lori Renee
The CBD cream is another one that hubbie has on hand for me to try.. Thanks for letting me know how well it works for you! Also, I'm using the massage chair to massage my ankles and lower calves.. and that seems to be helping me a bunch, too.. I will post more about that as the days go by.. So far, the only one that I've used has been the Frankincense and Myrrh.. and haven't used it yesterday or today.. So far, so good..
Good luck! By the way, I just used the Frankincense and Myrrh. (The one you said to order.) It helped my feet a lot! It loosened up my stiff and throbbing toes, and took pain away. Lasted a few hours. I was quite impressed! I throw away a lot of things I try, because they do not work for me. So I was very pleased! A few hours without pain is a good thing!!!! Lori Renee
Awww… I'm so happy that it helped! As I continued to use it, the pain did happen less often.. Right now I've been 2 days and nights without having to use any.. Did you mix it with hand cream? I use a face cream, but did try it with a heavier waxy lotion and that DID NOT get rid of my pain.. I think the cream is just to soften the skin and help spread the F&M around.. Maybe the thicker lotion just coated the skin, but prevented the rubbing oil from being absorbed.. So glad you are having such good results!
I just followed the directions! I rubbed some into my hand, and then put it on my feet. It works as good as a 25 dollar CBD salve that I swear by for pain. So these are the only two things that have worked so far! This is a Godsend when your feet are stabbing, burning, throbbing. In your case, WAY too hot. This is something else, isn't it? How could our little feet cause so much agony? In my case, it is primarily my toes. Horrid. Anyway, thanks for your info in the Frankincese and Myrr. The stuff works!!!!! Lori Renee
Hi, @hotfooted – sounds like your husband is looking out for you as you try and get the hot burning in your feet to subside. Will you talk more about the massage chair — how long you spent in it and what effect it had on the burning sensation or other issues?
Hi Lisa.. This is the 3rd day that I've used the massage chair.. By using the foot lift and raising the feet, while lowering the back rest, I'm in the best position for massaging the calves and just above the ankles.. My chair has 3 choices for this.. Kneading, Swinging, and Automatic (which is a combination of the first two).. I favor using the Kneading and use it for aprox 30 minutes each morning.. At the same time, I turn on the Vibrate and Tapping for the upper back piece.. This part I can move it up or down with the arrows.. I also put a small firm pillow behind my neck just to make it more comfortable.. I can shift my body around to locate the Tapping in different trigger points, which helps give me a fairly good massage up and down my back..
After using the chair, I am now using the Prescription Compound Cream on both feet.. The burning red hot feet are gone for now and feet just look normal.. Strong tingling, but bearable… I'll wait a while after lunch, then go ride the Exercycle (stationary bicycle) for 1 mile.. Most likely take a nap after that… smiley face… Oh yes, Before I all of the above I had been using Frankincense and Myrrh rubbing oil on my feet – with great results from that, too.. My dear husband keeps pushing me to test out different "helps", hoping to get me back to a more normal lifestyle.. Bless his sweet heart, he's a keeper..
Just a note regarding my use of the compounded cream for my feet …. I only used this one for a couple of days, as it did not make my feet feel better for very long… plus the tingling sensation was worse for me… Guess I'm just not at the stage of needing this stronger pain topical cream.. but I'm so very thankful that the Frankincense and Myrrh NEUROPATHY rubbing oil continues to do the best job for me.. and it's very inexpensive to use…
