Shocking pain in soles of feet!

Hi everyone,
Anyone share their ideas with me?

You can see my story from my signature - due to complications I suffer with permanent nerve damage, back pain & sciatica. I have good days and bad days.

Recently, one of my pre-op symptoms has returned. It is worrying me.
I get terrific pain in the soles of my feet - so much so that I have to get off my feet and lie down - quickly! My back then has the most awful "pressure" feeling which makes me feel quite sick.

Anyone else have this or similar? Following my last decompression I was better. Over the last few months it is creeping back.

My surgeon is reluctant to do any more with me. In fact, I don't think he knows what to do....I wonder whether to see someone else but don't know where to start with all that either - too many mistakes have been made on each surgery that I fear no other doc will want to take me on.

Having lived with chronic (and severe) pain (which was not checked by the docs) so that when the problems were found it was too late, my whole gauge as to what to say and when has gone wrong - like my boundaries are blurred. Most medics make me feel like a moaner (so I don't say a word) but I am suffering and don't know what to do. I feel like I need someone on my side, listening.
I hope that kind of makes sense. Thanks for your input!



  • Sorry to hear you're having pain again. I get pain and numbness and cramping in my foot and I take Cymbalta for the nerve pain and it helps as well as epidurals. I hope you see your Dr. and he can help you out. Take care. Charry
