Hi all, I am new to this as I was only recently diagnosed with this condition. I was diagnosed by a vascular consultant in Dundee Scotland. He told me that I had to stop smoking and begin medication. He prescribed Nebivolol (beta blocker) and suggested that I change my antidepressant from Paroxetine to one called Duloxetine as this one has a pain killing effect in some people. Well I tried the Nebivolol for 1 week but felt a bit strange so stopped taking it. I have no wish to switch antidepressants as it is just too difficult to cope with the awful symptoms when I reduce my 20mg dose. I feel that it would be better for me if I had a topical medication as I don't really want to add any more systemic medication to my mix. Along with Paroxetine I also take Levothyroxine and HRT. I am using a painkilling gel containing Ibuprofen at the moment which is a bit if a help but dread bedtime as my feet really burn then and it drives me crazy. Can anyone suggest something to numb my toes at night so that I can get to sleep. Many thanks
