| | Dilantin and Foot Pain/Numbness
Same doctor has told me on different visits that my foot pain and numbness is caused by pinched nerves, or added weight, or arthritis, etc. But, he won't say that it's caused by Dilantin. I had no foot problems before taking dilantin... or for about a year after starting it. I also weighed 40 pounds less when I started the dilantin.
Taking 300mg/day dilantin since Oct. '01.
Sinus trouble causing sleep apnea is supposed to be the reason I have seizures. Slowly taking care of that. Taking Dilantin "Just in Case" until then.
Luckily, not sleeping on my back has kept # of seizures down to only 8 total.
Do any of you taking Dilantin have foot pain and numbness... feels like socks bunched up under toes and ball of both feet... but hurts just a little worse.
Lower legs (knees down) feel sensitive too, but it's not restless leg syndrome.
Plus, think it's time for me to find another Primary Care Doctor?
