I have cardiovascular disease, had a triple bypass in 2003, and have had no problems other than AFib for which I received a Pace Maker until about 6 months ago. Now I am having intense pain in my butt, down legs from mid-thigh down to the bottom of my feet. I am also diabetic, but Blood Sugar is well maintained between 70-120.
I read on here where someone had to have stents put in his legs. What would be the symptoms for this kind of problem? At this point I am taking NorCon 5 mg broken in half with an allergy pill as I am allergic to 99.9% of all narcotic meds. I can only use this once a day, generally in the evening. During the day I take 800 mg of Ibuprofen twice a day. I LIVE IN CONSTANT PAIN! better with standing or laying down.
Hope someone can give me some ideas to control pain PLEASE. I am 75 years old. Barbara Medart
