My surgery was in Feb. and currently the pain from, I guess, the neuropathy is getting unbearable. It is currently 2:00 am and I cannot get to sleep. My question is my feet are burning and itching but the most painful symptom is this feeling that my toes are being strangled and it feels like there are huge lumps in the balls of my feet. The only medication I have been on is Lyrica which I had very unpleasant side effects from. Has anyone else had this problem or have any suggestions.
. I have exactly the same problems as yourself. I use the hottest Chilli cream for my feet.Capacian, some relief, and Lyrica 100 tablets. I wouldn't say hat my life has been improved by this medication. At 84 + two to three years into the condition life can be miserable! But I'm willing to try anything. If you keep a healthy lifestyle things should stay a bit easier for you.
