I have bilateral primary lymphedema since about 10 years old. Have had swollen and painful feet my whole life. Past five years I've had not just swollen and painful feet, they often feel like they are on fire. Not just feeling hot; they also feel like they are burning. I also get a shooting pain in my feet and legs.
So far the only thing I do is get up and walk around; rub them; wash them and apply cream and wrap them up again. Sometimes I take Gabapentin; which helps but makes me constantly fall asleep.
Do you have this? What helps for you?
Thank you for your advice. It's really hard to sleep when you suddenly jump up out of bed because of the burning pain in your feet.
