I am a 46 year old male. I have been dealing with a chronic pain condition for 10 years. Started after shattering the left heel. Pain is now in most joints and large muscles. I have been on hydrocodone for 7 years. have been tested by several neurologists with no answers. following the nerve conduction studies my pain levels were unbearable for 6 weeks! I am wondering if low testosterone levels can account for all of this pain?

My 12 year old boy has pain in the heel of both feet. The pain started last night and has persisted throughout the day. He is unable to fall asleep because the pain is intense. We gave him tylenols for pain and it hasn t helped. He placed his feet in hot salt water and there was temporary relief. He tried icing but the pain persisted. Short of taking him to the hospital tonight is there anything I can do at home to help ease the pain. He was not injured and is active pl;aying basketball in a league 3x per week.
