HI I am new to posting so please bare with me. For 6 years now I have had compression type pain from the bottom of my feet up my legs. I get aproximately 4 minutes on my feet before I can't take it. IF I am walking I have to drag my legs. I have 4 damaged disks. The lower scrubing on a nerve on right side. It is being treated with tramadol, which does little. I can not the meds like lyrica and gabapentin do to a heart condition and lymphedema, high blood pressure etc. I am overweight and loosing gradually with diet changes cutting out processed manufactured foods. I would like to know if anyone else has this type of pain and how they handle it. When I tell the Dr my lowere eextremities feel like they are in a trash compactor they say they never heard of it and it must be siatica. Can ssomeone please give me thoughts and experience of your own. Needless to say I cry alot.
