I am a 34 year old female. I recently had a heart attack due to a bad reaction to a medication. I was in a coma for 13 days. I am at home now and everything is perfect. A miracle since all of my organs shut down. But I have foot drop and severe neuropathy in both feet. Does the pain ever get better. I can now walk with crutches, but when I walk my feet go 100% numb. When I take my shoes and braces off the pain starts. UGH! There has to be something that helps. I wear lidocaine patches on my toes during the day and take vicodin every 4 hours. Neither seem to bring relief. (It feels like there are live wire in my feet and when they touch ~ OHH MY!!) I don't know much about neuropathy, but from all of my research it does not seem that it goes away. Am I going to have this horrible pain for the rest of my life? I have 6 children ~ there has to be some kind of relief. IF anyone has any ideas I would be so greatful. I go tomorrow to see my neurologist that I have seen for many years for migraines. Will he be able to help? What other doctor would I see for this? I know lots of questions, but I am truly lost! AND IN SO MUCH PAIN!
