    I have had extreme burning and nerve pain in my feet for 1 1/2 years. Crippling at night. Nerves shooting out the end of my toes. Can hardly bend them. Feels like my skin is pulled so tight it could tear. Originally diagnosed a B12 deficiency. Took shots until the doctors started disagreeing that B12 was the problem and stopped them. Has gotten continually worse. Have been to 3 GP's, 2 Internal Med specialists and 2 Neurologists. Have had 100 or more blood tests. Not a diabetic, no arthritis, no high blood pressure no nothing they can find. Every blood test shows normal range. No back injuries. Even had MRI... nothing. Meantime it is getting intense, and I'm afraid I won't be able to walk in a couple years. The best they've been able to do is a med to lessen the pain. But, that's a bandaid. I need a diagnosis and treatment. Any ideas?

    Forums such as this are rarely effective as a last resort. If your long-time situation has not be correctly diagnosed and treated by multiple GP's and specialists who had the advantage of be able to actually examine and test you, it is tremendously unlikely that anything truly productive can be gleaned from those who can not. In general, even in one's resulting desperation and frustration, it is often unwise to attempt to apply any and all recommendation which might be obtained from those who are offering often non-knowledgeable ideas and recommendation, as though such might be easily found, they are rarely effective and sometimes counter-productive and may even be unsafe. I would recommend that you stick with diagnosis and treatment from well-vetted doctors who can examine you and have responsibility to you, even though that has not worked out to date.
