Pain in my feet

Good morning members (New friends),
I have been having numbing pain in my feet. It started with my big toe on to my feet. I have been diagnosed for 15 years. I no longer take medication due to bad side effects.
Looking for suggestions to deal wit this pain.

Hi @pieces and welcome.

When you say that you no longer take medication due to bad side effects, I hope that you’re just referring to the MS Disease Modifying Therapies (DMTs) and not other symptom management medication!

When it comes to neuropathic pain, then medication is probably the main answer. Gabapentin (Neurontin), Pregabelen (Lyrica) and Amitriptyline (Elavil) come to mind. Alternative names are in brackets.

You’ll need to see you Doctor to obtain a script for these drugs.

You might also want to consider alternative holistic treatments, e,g. Acupuncture, etc..

Black and blue where I took injections or loss of hair or double eye vision. Stopping the medications they all went down or dissappeared. Turmeric, milk and honey has been working wonders for me.
