help!

Posted by sue m on 10/12/02 at 17:51 (097408)

I'm 73 years old. I have twin boy's, aged 6 and full of energy. I hope that someone could give me some advise. Every since the birth of my children in 1996, I hava suffered with Tarsal Tunnel syndrome. I have been to see many doctors. All they have said to me is that there is nothing that they can do for me. The only thing they can give me is pain killers.
Anybody knows you can not take strong pain killers if you have children.
anyway they make me ill. I need someone to me please!

You were 67 years old when you had twin boys if you are 73 now -- quite remarkable!

Read through posts carefully since there is a lot more than pain killers for tarsal tunnel syndrome. It sounds like you need to see a doctor who is more willing to help.
