EXTREME pain in foot at night!!! ?
For a long time now, but not every night, I get woken up from sleep w/ horrendous, excruciating pain. It feels like every single bone, tendon, everything has turned outward to the left (on left foot, though had it on right foot lastnight which I don't think has happened, it's always been left foot!) and then feels like someone is literally trying w/ all the strength they have to rip my foot off my leg. It lasts a few/several minutes, though feels like hours since it hurts so bad. Definitely comparable to labor. I also get bad charlie horses in my legs, but as bad as they are, they don't compare to this foot pain. I've been to a foot dr who sent me to a back dr who sent me to a Neurologist who sent me to a Pain Specialist. I've had x-rays, MRI, nerve test, and I don't know what all else. This has been over the course of several months, close to a year, though the pain I've had quite a bit longer than that. They've never mentioned ONE possible diagnosis!!! I honestly cannot believe this. It's NOT normal!!! And I seriously can't handle it and now that it was in my right foot, if I got it in both feet at one time, I would go insance. I wore my tall boots lastnight after the pain in my right foot since I don't get the pain when I'm wearing shoes. Please help. I'm going to a Physical Therapist Monday, but they're my last hope, though one of the dr's said the foot dr I originally went to is lazy and always refers ppl to a back or other dr. Thanks! Kris
