hydrocodone for the stabbing pain. Does anyone have horrible stabbing pains in their big toes? Seems like the pain takes turns with my big toes. One night the pain is just like I put my big toe into an electrical socket every 18 seconds. The next night my other big toe will feel like someone has placed a burning ember on my toe and left it there. The only thing that helps me with the pain is hydrocodone. I would rather take something that is not a narcotic. Anyone have any ideas?
When you mentioned a stabbing pain that goes down to the toes I immediately thought stabbing toes, Gout? I would ask your doctor if he or she thought the stabbing pain in the toe could be Gout?
Gabapentin/Lyrica for the nerve/stabbing pain and possible Naproxen for the breakthrough pain?
And as always make sure you run this possible diagnosis/treatment by your doctor? bestpup
I've known of people having pain and numbness in their big toes and diagnosed with gout that causes excess uric acid deposits in the joints. If this is your diagnosis you may be asked to change your diet and sometimes medications are prescribed to lower uric acid, help nerve pain or anti-inflammatories, or narcotics as a last resort. Getting the correct diagnosis is the first step.
