I have tars all tunnel in both feet. I have had one foot

Customer Question

I have tars all tunnel in both feet. I have had one foot operated on for nerve release this past March. I am still in the same pain. My family doctor has prescribed tramidol and gabapentin. Both at maximum dosage. I am still in agony most of the time. I guess
JA: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?
Customer: Just in my head.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: There is no sugar. I have had two nerve conduction tests. Both stated that it is definitely tassel tunnel. I am trying to find someone who does botox for feet in my area., or, get into a study. I cannot live with this pain or on pills the rest of my life. This was all caused by a very greedy and lousy female podiatrist.

what dose of each one?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
8 tramidold, 3 gabapentin. Max on both. Just also had cortisone in right foot. 5th metatarsal also hurts now.

has B12 level been checked?

have you tried anti depressants that work on pain like cymbalta or effexor?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No. I forgot, doing one round of prednisone. It is about half over. My podiatrist wanted me to do Lyrica. One of the side effects is weight gain. Not gaining weight, said no. I am a person who who treats the problem, not the symptom. Everyone wants to treat the symptom. I desperately need relief from the pain. It never goes away. I am hoping get botox might give me some relief so I can regroup and find a cure. Do you know of anyone who does this feet in western new York state that might be able to help me? I can go to page and Ohio also.
