What Causes Stabbing Pain In The Feet While On Neurontin And Tramadol?
I have been prescribed two medicines.
Neurontin 1200mg per day
Tramadol, 150mg per day.
The Neurontin has relieved the stabbing pain sensations and the Tramedol has had some effect on the other pain so that on some days I can walk reasonably well. My doctor is stumped about the "ROOT CAUSE" of the pain.
What do you think could be causing this incapacitating pain and what should I do to get to the root cause?
What do you think about the medicines and dosage?
Any other medicine or test suggestions?
Control blood glucose levels further will help.
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the foot that you have is likely to be due to a nerve related reason that can happen due to low levels of Vitamin B12 or diabetes. In case the blood B12 levels are normal then this can be due to nerve degeneration caused by diabetes. Proper control of blood glucose levels and methylcobalamin supplements will help.
The medicines and doses that have been prescribed are correct and will help you.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
