Well, Thanks, Twinkle Toes, for letting us know about how you are distraught with. So very much that you have on your list, besides EM that you have to contend with..Think, possibly your support system on an everyday basis is lacking.....Like, if I didn't have my husband to complain to, even though he's hard of hearing,, It would be so much harder to cope. Also an adult daughter who lives far away in another State is a patient ear & at 39 yrs old, even though she has RA ( full blown rheumatoid arthritis). So, I pray , that you have another person who is there with you or nearby , even via telephone, to at least sympathizes a little bit...Prayer does helps some & You will be on my prayer list now that I know that you seem to be suffering so very much.. And, cry out to your God, each & every day, believe me, He is listening.....When it comes to my EM, which is on my feet, I had to seek out by myself what helps me to cope for what can be, or is a debilitating problem for so many here & others.....When my feet burn I found that a liquid stomach antacid, diluted with a good quality water put directly on my burning foot areas help me & mixing that with a moisturizer,, be that Vaseline or something that agrees with you..Just recently, found too Rosehip Oil, organic with, no fragrance helps...Found out taking a tepid bath(no way near hot) with it in the bath water helps this & other problems like dryness..,
.I am in my 60's & do have H.pylori, varicose veins, MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities, like a burning face from certain odors, etc, think make my face burn,as long as 24 hrs not sure if it's a form of EM, or could be a form of rosacea , or in your case something different & think you know what I'm trying type about this.& what chemicals can do to ones body, as though who are so sensitive to them.. What I use on my feet now helps me for this, & too taking antihistamines. Also have a thing called BMS...Spinal lumbar back stenosis, significant lumbar back scoliosis, at least 2 herniated lumbar discs> These 5 spine problems diagnosed all listed on May 1st 2014..Also, osteoarthritis arthritis in both feet & knees. Last week diagnosed with 2 big eye cataracts in both eyes that I was told by the ophthalmologist I have along with the cornea dystrophy diagnosed since 1994...I take a lot of homeopathics to cope for all these problems..Noxicare capsules & found out that helps with the bones... There are so many others out there,,,for bad veins, the list goes on & on....For pain,that is reasonably priced is a Swanson,Brand, homeopathy, Pain & injury relief which are small pills that dissolve under the tongue.
Have you gone to a Neurologist, to test for peripheral neuropathy, in your legs or feet?..I have an appt for that coming up in October for my legs...Because I suspect I have that or some type of nerve problem,, Though am not at all not looking forward to that needle test...I have a vein doctor here who wants to strip my legs of the varicose veins with EVLT, though am very leary, as because have had sclerotherapy treatments done years ago that has left me with sensitive calves to just touch, even a little...I use Noxicare on my calves for this, though not on my feet..
Best of luck to you from answers here & God Bless You in Your Struggles, Each & Every Day....Caressa
