I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas on what this could be. The outsides of both of my feet are getting stabing pain when I walk. If I am shopping or walking around the house my feet will hurt. The pain goes to about my knee caps then my legs won't bend.So I'll have to hold on to a buggy slide my feet or sit down because I am scared I will fall.I have had 2 surgeries(can't spell:)L5-S1 now I have nerve damage.Had test run and all the other good stuff that goes along with having a bad back. I also have 2 bulging disc in the neck.Problems with back have gone on for years.My Neurosurgen sent me to pain management after 2nd surgery. This summer I found out with a MRI about the neck.Ok. My ears ring all the time and my neck swells. I guess what I want to know is does anyone else have or had that problem? Going back to Dr. tomorrow.He done xrays last time and will probably order another MRI. I just want to make sure I don't sound like I am crazy. It is funny how we question ourselves when we know we hurt. God bless us thou. Unless you have chronic pain everyday you really don't understand how bad it is. Thanks for reading. I love this site and it is nice to know I am not alone.
