Re: Should I amputate my foot?
hi, have you considered looking into any natural remedies? I have not had as extensive injuries but did some years ago hyper extend my ankle, touching my shin and pulled everything in between. doctors would have prefered it had broken. i have had other chronic pain from injuries over the past 15-20 yrs. and i currently am off of all heavy meds which i felt ran my life. i use therapuetic magnets for pain mngmnt. currently with great results. can also use even a refigerator or car magnet- i place them where ever the pain is and wrap an ace bandage to hold it if need be, you could stuff it into a sock, wrapping it around the ankle. for restless leg syndrome i have been taking an amino acid i get from the health food store called alpha lipoic acid. i take it 2x a day and got relief by the 7th day, its been about 8 wks now. i feel this could have a posative impact on your nerve pain. i think it could quiet them. i am using 5HTP and melatonin for sleep. you need to be able to sleep to repair yourself. i would also suggest a pycogenol-this is not only a strong natural anti-inflammatory but great for your immune system. hope it will help.
