Discussions that mention phenytoin

Foot & Ankle Problems board


I've had foot pain in both feet since about early 2003.
I started taking Phenytoin (generic Dilantin) in low doses late in 2001.
The next year I started taking Diovan for high BP.
No pain before starting meds.
Pain during the day feels like bunched up socks under front half of feet, arch forward.
Pain at night and in the morning is worse. Toes hurt, and arch forward aches... hurts to walk on them less after I put socks and shoes on.
Some numbness all of the time, and feet are not cold. No trouble walking, ankles and feet are still strong.
Any Ideas???
Is it meds? Or something else?
