    What can cause stabbing sharp pain in the foot and toes?  The pain is sometimes in my heel or the sides of my feet and nothing --  rubbing, heat, cold -- helps.  It's like being stabbed by little knives. Iit doesn't last long (maybe 12 to 15 minutes) but it is very painful.

    Niacin....helps ALOT. This seems like the description of Periphial Nerve pain....aka "Neuropathy". I have found that Elevating my feet helps as well, as the blood pools into the extremeties of our body. Foot Soaks...heating pad....CLEAN feet...i use apple cider vinegar, listerine, epsom salts which of course is a temporary relief...but some relief is better than none. A good diet cannot be underestimated either. Best to you, chronic pain steals lives, but with proper care, Research, and good support systems, I hope you feel better. Pray towards Heaven...ROW towards Shore. READ MORE
