Hi, Well today I got to see the pain specialist. Not a very rewarding trip. His view on my heel problems is to drill a hole in my back so that a needle can be inserted to send radio wavs to the nerve that runs to my heel, that will deaden the nerve to a degree to hopefully to lessen my pain. there is no guarentee it will work and side effects are many, I could be left with no feeling in my leg if they do to much, I could be left with a burning sensation down my leg that feels like a sunburn, these would be life long side effects. He also mention putting me on nerve meds and antidepressants what the heck would they do, make me not care if my feet hurt. He said it wouldn't help cause my problem is mechancial with my feet and that weight has no effect on my problem either. So I guess this was my last chance for some relief, looks like I will have to live with the pain and hope and pray it goes away. The alternatives are not to attractive.
