Hi my names John it is the first time on this site and I would like to discuss chronic pain I have had PN for several years now and has become very painful the medication that I am on is pregabalin which is 600mg Co codamol of and duloxetine 120mgs I take these meds and they don't help the pain. The PN (peripheral neuropathy) has damaged my nerves that much my toes feel someone has a hammer them I have arthritis in my toe joints my legs are painful when I walk one of my legs are weak when I am walking along the pavement and if it's uneven my leg will buckle and I almost fall the PN has lso affected my hands arms tendinitis in both arms which I find it very difficult to open bottles jars and also packets my finger tips are numb and can also be difficult to type on touch screens as I can't really feel the screen my finger tips and toes are always cold, my feet feels if I am walking bare foot on ice and it's a cold burning feelings and I still have a full-time job
