    Hi Michelle, You really need to make your appointments. There is no way to know what's going on, without some imaging.
    The feet and back sound lumbar related. But the neck would be an entirely different story.
    I could say that I've had more than my share of lumbar issues. And I do sympathize. The pain must be unbearable.
    But to diagnose your problems. You need to see a spinal specialist, and get the imaging done, just for starters.
    Good luck, Jim
