Hi Beanin,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This can be peripheral neuritis which is common in diabetics. But, you need to get yourself thoroughly examined by an apt ENT specialist to look for any other problems inside the nose. Also take vitamin B-complex, drink plenty of water and use saline nasal drops to keep your nose moist.
Take care

About a month ago my left big toe just started hurting. For a few days it was pink, warm and swollen. It started to feel better. Though it looked a darker red around the nail bed. then it started to look real dry and whitish. It is now starting to peel. Tonight I am experiencing some tingling, burning and itching in all of my left toes.

2years after tkr, have burning, stiffness after standing in one place for a few minutes, pressure behind knee, actually pressure discomfort in back of leg from thigh to calf. The stiffness after standing for just a short time is what really bothers me. Went through usual therapy and achieved excellent flexibility. Sorry, don t know exact number. Still ride my recumbent bike, walk every day. Within 10 minutes of walking, knee starts to burn. Also am not really steady on my feet anymore because of the difference of leg length. I have neuropathy, but not severe, and wonder if that might cause some of the burning.

I have PAD & neuropathy associated with it, mainly in my feet. Im taking neurotin and percocet, usually 1/2 a pill 2x s a day. Lately my blood pressure has been up. Is the percocet use causing the added hypertension? I m also taking Diovan HCT 160-12.5. Thanks. Kevin

I am breast cancer survivor. It has been 16 years since my first diagnosis. Four years after the first mastectomy I had a different kind of breast cancer in the second breast. This time along witb the mastectomy & reconstruction I had to have chemo. Then about a year later what I thought was the fibromyalgia pain in my back got a lot worse. Turns out that along with fibromyalgia the first cancer had spread to several places in the thoraxic, lumbar and later the siatic area of my spine. So, the doctor put me on chemo for a year and a half and two weeks of radiation. About a year later I had 5 cyberknife treatments. Another year later they had me have kifoplasty surgery. ( A couple of vertebrae had collapsed.) About 6 years passed when I was doing pretty well except for skme neuropathy in my legs and feet. Then in 2012 the cancer returned in the siatic area, so again I had a 5 month round of chemo. I am doing well again now except for a lot more neuropathy. My oncologist put me on fentanyl 25mcg patches about 10 or 11 years ago and femara once per day and hydrocodone 7.5 at night and the neurologist put me on Lyrica 300 mg., once per day, Savella 100mg twice per day, and the oncologist also has me taking potassium twice per day. I asked the neurologist to lower the Lyrica because I felt like my balance or the neuropathy had gotten worse when he had me go up from 200 to 300 mgs per day. So he lowered it to 225mgs and suggested that maybe I should consider going off the fentanyl patch. I had told him that I stumble around a lot. I have fallen several different times. I hate being on SO much medicine! But, I m also in a lot of pain!! What do you suggest?

I have lupus, sjogrens, MCTD, raynauds and neuropathy. I did have a barium swollow/upper GI, I told the doc I felt it was a muscle spasm he told me to put heat on my throat and stretch the muscles. I feel something move in my throat and it is not related to stress. It feels like. . .rolling your tongue if that makes sense only in my throat, It doesnt hurt and you can put your hand on my throat and feel it. It happens off and on all day. Feeling stupid but wanting answers. thanks!
