I would go to the ER instead of work, but how the hell could I do real damage to my foot sleeping?

I'm still sitting at a cool level 4 here.

If the pain isn't gone or almost gone by the time I get off work I guess I should do something. But urgent care wouldn't be able to x-ray and would ship me off anyway. And the ER is expensive.

Okay, time to hobble off to work now.
drugs dot com lists body aches and pains as an uncommon symptom
and not one to seek immediate treatment for.

How long have you been taking Risperdal?

Do you feel you could give it another couple of days to see if this symptom subsides?

If not, don't go to the ER, but call the prescribing doctor.

Sometimes another med can be added to minimize such side effects if the med
is working well otherwise.

If Risperidal isn't actually doing much for you, the doctor might suggest trying
another med.
