Customer Question
I have bilateral Erythromelalgia...

I have bilateral Erythromelalgia. I am taking Lyrica 125mg three times a day. I am at a point where I am not getting any help any more. What else can I use? Please help me, I am at the end of my rope.

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

I have seen several Doctors, but not getting any help. As I said, I am on Lyrica 150mg three times a day.

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

My Aunt suffered from the same disease. She would fill the bath tub with cold water, then stand in it till she got some help.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?

No fever. The soles of my feet turn bright red, it is worse in the warm weather. I can't stand closed in shoes, even in winter.

There have been so many over the years, that I can't seem to remember. I do know that none of them worked. I did use Asper cream on them, also soaked them in cold water with tea tree oil in it.
