Back Problems board


I can also relate to the foot pain you are talking about.... I have experienced this pain for about 8 months now in my right foot.... it feels like my toes and the side of my foot are being stabbed with a knife..they burn and hurt... feel like they are gonna fall off....only relief I get is by lying flat on my back... which releases the pressure at L5-S1.. which is where all my problems are.... and makes the foot pain ease up... I have also found that When I was on Keppra...which is like Neruontin... the pain in my foot eased up... they took me off the Keppra since the only pain it did help is the foot pain... and switched me to Neurontin....but I am kinda afraid to take the Neurontin... because of all the scary side effects....but I was told specifically by my Neurologist that my L5-S1 is what was causing the foot pain.. because those nerves run right down your leg and into your foot and that is one of the classic signs of L5-S1 trouble....I find I can not wear any type of shoes that presses on my foot... like sneakers etc... makes the pain worse... pretty much only wear flip flops.... Which may pose a problem in the winter... LOL! Hope this helped a bit.... Hope things get better for you... Take Care...... :angel:
