... experiences sever shooting pains in their big toes. I finally have the burning, pins and needles, numb feelings under control in my feet, but the stabbing pain I feel in my big toes is excruciating. I have done just about everything from Vicks, Bengay, Muscle and Joint gel, Intense Remedy Rub, massage, hydrocodone, lyrica, gabapentin and cymbalta. Nothing knocks the pain until the second or third dose of hydrocodone. Does anyone have any advise for me?
