please help, i am a 23 year old student, i moved to south italy in sep 2007, in march 08 my feet started to burn, i had no idea what it was i went to a hundred doctors here, till this day they have not been able to tell me what is wrong, they are very incompitent, there is no control, people die all the time because they dont know what they are doing, i am stuck here and i dont know what to do.
they burn when its hot or cold, they get so hot that i cannot wear shoes, the glue of the shoe actually melts and they come apart, they sweat obnormally, swell up to ridiculus size , become very red and/or purple, i cant feel most of my toes, i cannot hardly walk anymore, they have episodes were they become hotter than usual, the hot episodes sometimes effect the rest of my body also, i have had all sourts of test blood test everything is normal, thyroid is negative, they put me on all sourts of medication, even steroids, nothing has helped, i take b12 supplements, they just keep giving me stuff and they dont even know what and why, it has been a almost a year now, i cannot take it anymore, it has ruined my life, i was a competing athelete, a student and have not been able to attend, i have lost oppurtunities, i have lost all friends, i cannot work, i should have never came here, it has been the biggest mistake of my life
