I have shooting, sharp and burning pain in my left foot and ankle. My foot doctor diagnosed a broken first metatarsal and cracked ankle. But it feels like nerve pain. It hurts done the top of my foot when I lightly brush the skin in the front of my ankle. I also have autonomic neuropathy and frequently fall down(pass out) with low blood pressures. I have broken my other foot, but this pain is ten times worse and isn't relieved by narcotics. I also have herniated every disk in my lumbar spine. Could he be right and it is just the bones or can it be both at once? I do have moderately severe neuropathy in both feet. What can I do for this pain? I'm almost at the point where it would feel better to have them cut off my foot, it couldn't hurt any worse. HELP!
