I get a lot of pain in my feet when I'm on them too much due a badly healed severe sprain and a torn ligament or tendon(not sure which) that I'm hesitating having surgery on. Surgery always causes such severe fibro flares. Anyway, when either of these flares up, A good soak in hot epsom salts water does a body good!

I have been to more doctors than the sickest person alive. They never have any answers.
I have never been Dxd with diabetes.

my fibro has always been more in the muscles, more like achey flu-like symptoms. The way I always describe it is if you don't get enough sleep your muscles tighten up, and then you ache more all day. But I have also seen that fibro is different for everybody. I do have specific pressure points that hurt to the touch 24/7 and have for as long as I can remember. Those are the ones on the sides of my thighs right where my fingertips brush against them when my arms hang down normal.

I experienced this for about 1 month and it recently just went away. I am not sure what it was, but I will ask my physician at my next check-up since I am curious.

You don't have to be diabetic to experience neuropathy, it's simply the most common cause. Something is interrupting your nervous system's normal functions. it can be due to things like PAD, MS, any number of thiings--I'd talk to your doctor, maybe see a neurologist...

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

I have experienced piercing, stabbing pain on the top of my feet and the back of my hands. It is excruciating. It occurs suddenly, and I can't say there is anything I can do to relieve it although hot packs seem to make me more comfortable. Eventually it calms down and goes away - just as spontaneously as it starts. I do believe it is similar to diabetic neuropathy, but I am not diabetic.

Are you diabetic? Sounds like neuropathy.

I have piercing stabbing pain in my feet and legs especially my calves. It is preventing me from living a normal life. I am lying down in bed with the electric blanket too much!!!!
I have tried sn Rx at one point in time but it did nothing. I soak in hot water in the morning to try and loosen them and begin my day. I sometimes need to go in the hot water again at the end of the day. If I could live in hottub I would.

What have you done that had helped?
