Wanted to search through the conversations and see if anyone had already posted but not sure how to do that!
Basically I have the most painful feet ever, I was getting pain on and off for a while however gradually its become more and more frequent to the point recently it seems to be there all the time. It’s a kind of cramping muscular pain especially on the outside of my foot near my little toes, it does get better if I walk more although I tend to be in more pain then when I rest and get up again, viscious circle really. I don’t know if its because I have put on a fair bit of weigh what with 3 courses of steroids and going on DMDs and Gabapentin …I do have little feet carrying a lot of weight now 🙁
I have tried different shoes, inserts, gel pads, icing and elevating and the usual stuff but nothing makes the pain go away, and no drug seems to hit the pain, some days are worse than others and I can’t bear walking anywhere.
I have also recently started having tendonitis in my elbows and hands, this is since starting Tecfidera and so I also wonder if its a side effect of this new drug.
Anyone else suffer with painful feet? … is it an MS thing or a drug thing or is it just a thing and I should probably sign myself up to weight watchers and lose some weight…feeling fed up and never know what is MS and what isnt, my GP seems to like to lump everything under MS now and is totally slopy shoulders passing me off to my Neuro team all the time.
Any suggestions on how to manage this ?
