I too have daily foot pain. Averaging from 3-10 every day. It can be such a challange to do anything at all. And when I push myself, I inevitably pay for it later. I agree, most dont understand, not even those closest to me. I was on the oxycodone the months follwing an accident and it was a tremendous struggle to quit taking it. I think that class of drug is extremely addictive. I had physical withdraw symptoms for over 2 weeks. I now take a very mild narcotic pain reliever and I reserve it only for those days that I feel pain level 5 or higher. the other days I just deal with the pain. Even on the mild pain reliever If I get going through a particular painfull period, not nly do I feel the side affects from the med, but also the withdrawels when discontinuing or cutting back. If you have not already, learn to walk with a cane or a walker, which can be exausting as well, and overall a pain in the &**. Other than rest, my best alternative pain releiver is the local indoor pool. I am fortunate to have one near me, that has both a large pool and a small warm theraputic pool where I can get in and walk almost normal in the shallow end. It feels so good to actually move my body in a normal way and in normal allignment, as the constant limping and dragging and cane walking makes everyting hurt! Good luck to you.
