i was dx with fibro early this year. the past 2-3 years has been terribly painful and frustrating. i'm taking 600 mg of neurontin 3x day, prevacid 30 mg 2x day, flexeril 10 mg, magnesium 1000 mg day, vit d 2000 iu day, and a multivitamin. my foot pain has been steadily increasing every day. it hurts the worst when i wake up and put my feet down. i get a tingling/burning pain like when your feet have fallen asleep and they are just waking up. it lasts a few minutes then subsides, but i still have sharp and burning sensations throughout the day when i'm on my feet. it doesn't hurt when i'm not putting pressure on them, but when i stand up or walk again after sitting, even for a few minutes, it hurts again. the pain only goes away when i am off my feet. is this related? is it something else? i see my neuro next week and am hoping to increase my flexeril. i just started with the vit d, and have read that it helps a lot with pain. thoughts?
a few of us here have foot pain; for me, it seems a circulatory problem more than fibro related; i have similar feet tingling mildly, and legs hurt [muscular], and sometimes feel like veins are distended when i stand up after lying down. i'm also on magnesium and vit d which feel like they're doing good...
I've found my inflammation is worse with milk/ dairy, msg, maybe gluten; if you havemt already i think it's worth having a go at eliminating some things, at least it cant hurt? best of luck
