Annette: I am very interested in your orthopedic shoes - did the Dr. write a prescription, or just tell them to make something they feel will help? I don't know any dr. who would know what to prescribe! I would be willing to come to whereever this place is, anywhere in the world, if you get relief from this. Please, please keep us informed if this helps you! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of us.

Oh, I agree re: the drugs - the antidepressant can help with chronic pain (not that much, really, but at least since I started taking it, I'm no longer having suicidal thoughts). I'm taking 50 mg of Elavil at bedtime, and I don't notice any side effects at all (been on it 3 weeks). I'm also taking neurontin, 300 mg 3 times daily - this one is a little worse - makes me a little dizzy, and very forgetful, and my vision is slightly blurry - sounds great, huh? But, it has dramatically reduced the intense burning in my feet. So, I am willing to do it. You can research all these drugs on the net by putting the name into Yahoo under the Health section. I'll look forward to hearing about your results!!
