I have pain in both feet on the outsides, sometimes it comes across the tops but not very far onto the top of my feet. When I first get out of bed in the mornings, EVERY morning and after prolonged sitting, is extremely painful. I have to slide my feet, trying not to bend at the toes while walking until my pain medicine takes effect. Walking, after I get going is not painful. The pain occurred while I was taking a choleserol medicine but has continued to be a constant problem even though I stopped taking it about 8 months ago. I also have right hip pain that is worse in the mornings but doesn't escalate during the day. It does slow me down. My doctor and I have discussed fibromyalgia, but we haven't stopped with that diagnosis. My fingers and wrists and left forearm are painful all during the day.
I take a hormone replacement medicine, prilosec, cymbalta, xanax .25, 3 times a day, trazadone for sleep, biotin for hair & nails and sublingul B12 in addition to the pain medication that has been changed from time to time. None of the different pain medications have lessoned the foot pain, it's just makes it a little more tolerable.
I suffer from anxiety, depression and panic attacks but the attacks are not as frequent as they were 3 or 4 years ago. I have had bells palsey 2 times in the last 12 years. I had back surgery for a herniated disc (C-6 & 7), about 12 years ago, and it worked for the severe pain. I do occasionally still have pain in my right shoulder, neck and right forearm. I have seen a vascular doctor and he stated I have excellent pulse in my feet & legs. My family doctor is sending me for an MRI, but I'm desperate for any information I can receive from anyone that has experience anything like this. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
