Legs and Feet - Help!

Hi all,

Hope everyone is ok?

Haven’t been on here for a while, but I would really like some advice on what to do about my shins, ankles and feet, they really hurt!! Nerve pain I think? I already take 50mg amitriptyline daily and didn’t know if i could/should increase temporarily? I was fine this morning and now i can barely walk

Any hints or tips gratefully received!

Thanks guys xx

Hey, One of my main symptoms is foot and leg pain … Pins and needles, burning up, spasms, general discomfort when walking… I take 900mg of gabapentin three times a day and it helps most days! Otherwise try and stay off your feet as much as you can - hard I know, but it does help. That and foot soaks, just to ease them a bit. Hope that helps, Catherine

Hi

My legs are worse at the moment, I think it may be due to the heat.

Could you have a word with your ms nurse (if you have one) or your gp

to ask about increasing it.

Take care

Hi I am the same as Pam. My legs are awful and it may well be the heat. Hope you sort something out, Teresa xx

I’m the same, and the heat and flimsier shoes are not helping. I take 50mg of amitriptyline every night, it definitely takes the edge off it but doesn’t help completely. I’d definitely speak to your doc and see if you could try increasing the dose a bit.
