View Full Version : weird sensation in one foot

12-26-2007, 11:50 AM
For about a month now, my left foot has had the weirdest thing going on. I didn't hurt it, but, it just started having what feels like a tendon or a muscle that stabs with pain if I kneel down on it, and is generally tingly on the top of my foot from the ankle to my toes. It feels like pins and needles if I have a shoe that fits just snug against the top of my foot.

Any thoughts?

Have no idea, but hope that you get it sorted out soon ~leaves a bundle of hugs for you~

I have a very similar thing in my left foot - had it once before, and eventually it turned into plantar fasciitis. It IS weird - I agree. It just doesn't seem logical - you kneel down and your foot hurts!

The tingling, though....maybe a neuropathy? That's pretty common with lupus. As usual, a good question for the doctor!

My Mom is a diabetic and had the pins and needles feeling from her feet up to her legs every night; it's neuropathy. Unfortunately, they didn't have Nueroton to help as they do now. She has no feeling in her feet due to the disease progressing.

I have heard that infrared therapy helps and there is a herb that helps with circulation. I honestly don't remember what it is. I am sorry. Many physical therapists have infrared anodyne therapy machines that you strap around the areas that you are experiencing problems with though you have to have a presciption from your GP or Rhuemy.

I hope you feel better. Take care,

Wow, thank you all for your responses. I did some reading on neuropathy, and that is exactly what I am experiencing. It's amazing how much lupus can affect your body. I never realized it, but, I have been having neuropathic pain for years, I just chalked it up to arthritis or some similar complaint and just ignored it. Ho Hum, another symptom to add to the list. I still don't have my blood work results, probably due to the holidays and all, but, I will be calling my doc's office today just to check. Maybe something came in. '
