Dead Feet
My husband is 58 years old and suffers with " dead"  feef.. It is extremely painful and can hardly walk or stand on it any more. We have been to about every doctor and medical tests you can think of and from a medical point they can' t find any thing wrong. All his medical test come back as normal. He battle for about three years now and doen' t matter what we do nothing help. It is worse on his foot cussion and toes, I massage his feet to help ease the pain a bit because no medication or painstillers are helping. I feel litte knots under his feet on certian points and if I do touch it he want to go throug the roof from pain. His x-rays also shows as normal, no pinch nerve. We are desprate for help. What advise can you give us?
Thank you

Dear Lelanie

Have you been to a neurologist? It may be that your husband has painful neuropathy. I can think of no other condition that will give the symptoms you describe.
