Re: Painful and hot feet at night
Eowyn and Sylvianne, I went thru what you are both going thru for 8 years with the hot feet, it used to drive me crazy, at night while watching T.V., I would put ice on them and during the night, I would get up and run cold water on them, I couldn't sleep because my feet were so hot, I was miserable. I went thru 4 or 5 doctors before I was sent to pain mamagement after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, my doc put me on neurontin and cymbalta, the cymbalta for pain and depression, keep in mind I am not depressed, but the misery I was going thu made me depressed, the meds worked wonders for me, no more hot feet, and after a while, the neurontin didn't work, so now I am on Lyrica and cymbalta, It is a miracle drug, I can't believe how well it works, absolutely no more hot feet. The only problem is, I am gaining wait like crazy, so now I am in a tough spot, keep feeling better and keep gaining weight, not sure what to do, I joined a gym to see if I can't get the weight off, I am determined, because it just feels so good not to have burning feet. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know you are not alone, ask your doc about neurontin, and does he believe in fibrmyalgia....Good luck
