My husband and I both have it. It causes severe shooting pain and sometimes a feeling of having a hot poker going through the area where you have it. I have it in my toes which caused hammer toes, also very painful and the arch of my feet and my fingers. What I have is Periferal( sp ) Neuropathy. Which means they don't know why I have it. I'm not diabetic. Because I also have Fibromyalgia. I am on Lyrica for both. I think Lyrica is like a miracle. I could hardly function before. That is why I had to retire. My Husband has it in his legs and feet. He takes Neurotin. He is a Diabetic Type ll.
