Thanks for your query.

I can understand the pains you must be going through and have tried many things.
Please discuss the following things with your Doctor, I am giving you some solutions which work for all my patients.
Take broad based bucket or a bowl in which you can rest your both feet comfortably.
Pour in a water till it fills up to 8 inches. Remove the feet and start adding common salt to the water. Go on adding till you can see the salt not being able to dissolve. This makes it supersaturated solution.
Once this saturated solution is made, you have to make it warm on a stove to an extent that the back of your hand can tolerate, pour it into the bucket, test the temperature again, rest your feet in to the bucket. Keep part of the solution on the stove so that you can add warm solution to the bucket with feet. Continue for 15 minutes minimum twice daily. Do not throw away this solution as it will look dirty after some days; use the same.
You may take an additional oral steroids in the form of deflazacort/Omnacortil under the prescription of your Doctor, in tapering dosage and may take diuretics if needed as you are non-responsive to pain-killers.
Always take multivitamins as they act like anti-oxidants.
I hope this helps you as it helps many of my patients.
Please feel free to ask for more if you need to or if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
Wishing you an early and complete recovery.
