Peripheral neuropathy and back spasms

by Susan
(Newcastle upon tyne England )

I am currently on alot of medication 💊 morphine, tablets and oral. Amotriptoline, so on; I want these tablets to stop but the pain in my feet and hands is unbearable, so i have to get some sort of ease. My feet are the worst, the nerve endings in there are so sore.


I am 63yrs old.

What I want to know is will I ever be able to be pain and tablets free and will the pain in my feet ever go away.

I hope you can help me as I am desperate thank you.


Hello Susan,

I presume you have been assessed for diabetes. Obesity and raised blood glucose have an inflammatory effect on the nerves and is a major cause of peripheral neuropathies.

No chemotherapy?

More likely seeing you are having back spasms is some form of spinal stenosis. Have you had an x-ray or scan and are you doing any daily back exercises?

What back treatment have you had?

Let me have some answers and we take this further.
