I'm really really sick of the stabbing pain in my toe. So far it's only guesses as to cause, eg lyme, Bart, mold...

The more it happens, the more I just don't want to go on.

I'm on ldn, 1.25 mg. Just increased from 1 mg about a week ago. Working up slowly. Just had my 1st dose thc/cbd at half of .25 mg tincture.

What has worked for you guys with this? I really need some kind of hope. It's been 4 yrs of this crap.

Have you had an MRI of your lower spine?

I have had severe nerve pain from my spine that goes all the way into my feet and toes.

What was wrong with your spine that caused that?

I have 1 bad disc but was told it's minor. Plus this started way before I hurt my back.

Right foot, 2nd to last toe

If it's not your back, you could have arthritis in your foot.

I've had xrays and ultrasounds of my foot. All I have is a small growth in back of one.

Might need an MRI .. but I would say it's more likely from the spine.

6hypnone,
I get the stabbing pain in my feet periodically. Right toe can get especially bad. I’ve found that various essential oils rubbed in a couple times a day ( diluted of course with olive oil ) really help make it go away.

If it’s Lyme, Bart or whatever, it doesn’t like essential oils! Moves out! I try different ones. Usually Helichrysum, Basil, Douglas Fir, and / Or Lemongrass. I’m guessing others would work too. Well wishes on that.

Lymewest, I do use that, it's called nerve support from Rocky mountain oils. Nerve Support features Basil, Helichrysum italicum, Peppermint, and Marjoram, in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil.

I dunno that it's doing anything. I dont think I've tried douglasfir or lemongrass.
Do you use a mix or one at a time?
I was under the impression that for this type of sporadic nerve pain, things had to be oral to work. Have you also used any oils orally for this issue?

Lymetoo, I will ask my lyme doc as I doubt my neuro would agree to suggest it as he knows nothing of lyme

6Hypnone,
Sorry for the delay. I’m slow at responses.
I use the essential oils separately. Apply maybe 2 or 3 of them sometimes layered. Helichrysum also. I’ve just got a bunch and try different ones on my spots of pain all over my body. Each one is in a small roller bottle.

Douglas fir has worked best on my Shoulder joint pain for some reason. Lemongrass on my knee pain. Lemon balm on herpetic related pains. Helichrysum and others I mentioned for foot and toe pain. Oregano on my spine to move Lyme out of nerves that block my digestion.

I’ve found it best to use them separately to see what does what. But they do work with persistent use. That’s been my experience.
