    Hi @minxykat

    Have you talked to a medical professional about this?

    Hi @minxykat
    I have fibromyalgia ,OA and Gout amongst other things and at most of the time the my feet feel like I've had 6 of the best ( cane corperal punishment) in case your too young to remember)  :)
    Across the bottom of them moreso on the left foot with at the moment a very swollen ankle.
    The same on the tips of my fingers
    I find ice water to drink and soak 
    Failing that back up quick relief with morphine ,and slow release pregabalin.
    Hope you can find an answer

    Hi @minxykat,
    I am so sorry to hear how much you have on your plate at the moment.  Whilst fibro is different for everyone, from talking with other sufferers I believe that these feelings in your feet are common - in fact one friend has one foot that is affected and the other not.  I also get burning in my foot that is affected by nerve damage and use pregabalin.  
    I will try to find some other suggestions that might help.
    Best wishes, Claire

    Hi  @minxykat
    I have Fibro., as well and the symptoms regarding your feet I am experiencing them also.  I think this is a part of the condition.  My feet always feel like they are burning up, regardless of whether it is hot or cold, I have to be careful wearing shoes and have had to go up a shoe size and look for wide fitting shoes because they swell up even my ankles get puffy.   Are you under a medical professional?  Who is monitoring the amount of morphine that you are taking?  I joined the Fibro society and they are very helpful, they also have a helpline that you can call I think it's twice a week for a phone call to someone who you can talk to openly about Fibro.,  I hope this helps.
