Thank you! I'm pretty sure that I don't have Lyme Disease or candid issues. I just posted a reply to alittlegloss. It explains what I have been going through. I appreciate your thoughtful reply!View Thread
To alittlegloss: I am still suffering off and on from the stinging pain in my feet, currrently off. It was determined that a nerve was being pinched in my lumbar spine. I have had 2 rounds of epidural steroid shots in my spine. The first time I had this done, in October of 2010, it worked and stopped the stinging. However, I am very careful how I sit. When I am in a car, I always use a lumbar support pillow. A PT sold it to me and told me to place it vertically behind my back. That really helps. I had to have the series of 3 epidural steroids shots again in October of 2012. I always felt that the onset of this was when I sat in a car for a 13 hour road trip. I just returned from a 3 week road trip and had no pain in my feet! I am seeing a chiropractor for a year and getting regular thereaputic massages. I have had several rounds of PT in the past few years. Another thing that really helped me is traction. I have had 2 series of that at the PT. It is a little intimidating to have it done the first time, but it has really helped. I saw my fibromyalgia doctor this week. He did a blood test to check again for RA. The first time that I saw him, he told me not to worry about RA because it was a false positive result. I know that this is getting long, please bear with me a little more! I have started to attend a restorative, gentle Yoga class once or twice a week. It is a huge help also! I also tried acupuncture! It seems to have helped, but I can't be sure. I will get the blood test results in a day or two. I will keep you posted if you want. Good luck to you....it is worth it to get the stinging feet problem solved. That was pretty bad!View Thread
