Customer Question
The top of my...

The top of my feet are killing me! I heard that Nabumetone could help me.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

HTZ for high blood pressure. I'm 80 years old.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Yes. I see my MD 2 x year but I haven't mentioned my feet. Might need to see an orthopedic MD since it seems to be the bones in my upper feet.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Otherwise, I'm really healthy! I now wear New Balance shoes and they really help...but there are times when I want to wear somehing dressy...!

What makes it worse?

What makes it better?

Describe the pain - is it burning? a bee sting sensation? or sharp shooting?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The pain comes from the bones on top of my feet. When I walk they are very painful, but if I wear my New Balance shoes the pain is gone. My friend in her 70's had a similar pain, her orthodedic doctor prescribed 750 mg of Nabumetone and the pain is gone.

This is a very good medication.

Unfortunately, we can not prescribe medications over the internet.

Nabumetone is a nonacidic NSAID so it has fewer side effects and long term negative effects when compared to other NSAIDS such as ibuprofen.

You should have your kidney and liver function tested prior to starting this medication.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
