Is Hand And Feet Pain Part Of The Condition?

I have felt the pain in my feet. Standing for any amount of time in the shower was rough; it's a little better now but I don't go without shoes much on hard surfaces. There were times that my hands hurt, too. But my feet were much worse.

I have hand & feet pain since starting chemo for my Leukemia. My Primary care Doctor diagnosed it as Plantar Fasciitis. Went to a foot doctor. I was given the tests for the condition. She said "NOPE" it is a problem with nerves in my back. A Chiropractor was called in to the office visit. He also said a spinal nerve problem. I have multiple back injuries from being a Firefighter/ EMT. I am doing all the stretching activities that I have done for over 25 years since I was injured & left the job on disability.
I saw my Primary care physician on Wednesday. I inquired into the status of seeing a Chiropractor at VA clinic. She said that the Chiropractors will not treat me because of Leukemia. She is as confused as much as I am. I have seen Chiropractors many times since my Leukemia diagnosis. None have said that they could not treat me. Only problem with an adjustment is the broken plate in my neck from surgery in 1996.
Going to grocery store is painful & I have to prop me feet up due to pain & swelling. Cutting the grass is torcher. Along with the profuse sweating cutting grass. Keep after your doctor for more tests & possible physical therapy. I have 2 exercises I can do for the foot pain. None helps with pain but reduces swelling. How are we to keep active when it causes so much pain just to stand or walk?
