Foot Pain

Posted by simmie @simmie, Jul 5, 2016

I have fibromyalgia and osteoporosis (arthritis too), and I am wondering if anyone has had any luck in finding help with pain the feet? I recently started experiencing chronic pain in my left foot (top and bottom) and my right calf. It’s sore and burning. It’s getting difficult to walk and this is frustrating me to no end! I am a walker so this is not a good thing for me (or anyone). Suggestions, help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hmmm… wonder if PN (perepheral {sp?} neuropathy) might enter into your picture. I have many of the same symptoms as you descibe in relation to pain in your feet and fibromyalgia, althritis. Here’s the kicker — regardless of the “title” of the specific disease you and gobs of others are told you have — there’s so many symptoms that apply to any disease, I don’t think it’s easy to give the disorder a specific name.

Thank you for your response and I agree with you. You have to wonder what is happening when so many people with fibro are starting to experience the same things.

i do have Perepheral Neuropathy in my feet, but this is more burning it seems. Would it also contribute to overall horrific soreness of my feet?

Probably Cherril. When you see your dr. mention it to him/her.

Yup, with PN, your feet burn – sometimes – sometimes they’re ice cold. The cold feels better. My PN was chemo-related although, there was some “tingly” feeling before chemo started. anyway, as stated above – I don’t care what they call it – I wish they could just fix it – preferably without some wonder-drug med that will cause something else I don’t want. Nobody seems to agree on what it is – just treat the symptoms – so this could go on and on and on…

Mary,
Saw my rheumatologist today and it’s arthritis in my feet (as shown in my bone scan), however, he also said that it could be from my neck (neck is very bad). I had an xray of my foot today and he wants me to get an MRI (which I will wait forever to get), and also go for the EMG that my GP wants me to have. I am so sick and tired of going to drs. Oh, I also was told yesterday that my sugar levels are up and I had to start on meds for that as well.
I am sorry you had to go thru chemo, I understand it’s hard. Hope you are doing better.

Thank you. I will definitely do that. Although I think I might have to tell my Rheumatologist, as my Primary Dr. doesn’t seem to offer much dialog about the foot pain.

I have never heard of rooster serum. (Are you in States?) I presume so, I live in Canada and we take a long, long time to get anything controversial or different approved for use by our regulatory agencies. Good luck on the 21st and let me know please how it went.

I tried HYALGAN (Synvisc) in my knees. It didn’t work for me but I may have waited too long before trying. I have heard some said it worked for them. My dr. also suggested I try in my ankles but my at that time it wasn’t approved in the states for anything other than knees so my insurance wouldn’t cover. I don’t know if it has been approved in the states for other joints yet. I need to check so I can try it in my ankles. Mr dr. was sure it would help. @success101 it may take a couple months before you would know if it works. Be sure to let us know!
