From the moment I wake up till I go to sleep, I suffer from a variety of pains, from mild tingling, burning,itching of the skin at various places to sharp pains from my waist downwards. Even as I wake up, the small of the back and waist hurt; the hips,buttocks and the soles of my feet, with a burning pain; the thighs, calves and foot as if a live wire runs through them (making me unable to walk even a few steps), the foot and instep hurt as if a nail is being driven through them. My knee joint hurts every-time I try to walk. It's a miserable life of pain. I wake up in the middle of the night with muscle pulls, catches and cramps that are excruciating. I drink about 20 glasses of water everyday, to reduce the pain. But it does not seem to help. Doctors have asked me to avoid over-the-counter pain-killers, in order to avoid damage to my kidneys. Both my feet are permanently swollen with edema. Whenever the cramps and pain hit my pelvic cage, I lose control over my bladder.It is extremely embarrassing as well.
Is there some other remedy to alleviate the pain?
I am a Type Ii diabetic for 25 years, now on insulin, but my sugar levels are fairly under control 90 to 140 mg / dcl and I am 74 years old. I also suffer from sciatic pains due to an injury sustained many years ago caused by four herniated discs in my lower back..
