    Numb burning feet please help


    My feet are constantly numb, it's been getting worse and sometimes it is just burning and painful feet, but often they are numb. I looked into nerve decompression surgery but apparently my neuro sensory ability is impaired and I wasn't a candidate. I've read a lot on the message boards about how this progresses and it's frankly terrifying. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to diagnose what's going on? I've been to neurologist, had spinal MRI for cervical and lumbar, been to acupuncture and had tons of blood tests. No one knows why my nerves are dying, something is attacking them, but what?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It's been ten years and is definitely getting worse.

    sounds to me like you have neuropathy. I have heard that Lyrica can work very well for that. Might be time to have a chat with your general doctor about it.

    Yes, I do have neuropathy. I have been to many doctors and no one has anything to suggest besides Neurontin or lyrica. But I want to figure out why I have it, since I have no underlying problem that is causing it. I am in good shape, I work out, no diabetes, mri of back and cervical spine showed no issues related to feet. I would like someone to tell me what else I can do, other specialists somewhere in the country (I will go anywhere, I don't care, just to get rid of this), and ideas so it won't progress further. Thanks everyone.
