Severe pain and burning, both feet and only at rest. Able to walk, hike, run, etc without pain. Elevation of feet (even driving a car), sitting in a recliner, etc
causes immediate painful burning in both big toes. Have visited many specialists and had almost every conceivable test (X-ray, MRI, PVR, Angiogram).
No consensus as to cause. Tried steroid injections, many medications such as Nerurontin, Diclofenac, Lamictal, also Acupuncture and Raiki. None have proved very helpful.
Now under "Pain Management" using Lido/Nifed deep gel and a TENS device
(Rehabilicare-IF WAVE). TENS device seems most helpful so far but results vary greatly depending upon electrode placement. (Ankle/beneath big toe and variations.) If anyone has any suggestions or thoughts on this subject, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
