    In the middle of the night my feet wake me up with this burning pain in my heels.

    Anyone else have this happen? Know what from?

    I had it awhile ago and then it went it away, but back now.

    I am on alot of meds, too many to list right now.

    Thanks for any feed back...... Smiles

    I dont know what causes it but I am sick of it!
    My legs also hurt very bad at night keeping me awake most of the night. So sorry you have it as well.

    I have the burning pain in my heels also, And it wakes me at night so I try to move it to a different position but it is so difficult because my legs hurt so badly.

    By that time I have to get up and go pee!

    Yes - especially in damp spring weather the feet can hurt badly. I had plantar fasiatis for 2-1/2 years just from walking barefoot down the stairs. (Please do not walk barefoot!) As for FM, Specialist warned me - we have ligaments that run down the bottom of the feet and up the heels. They can get inflammed and stretched the wrong way, and even go into spasm. I wear gel supports in the heels of my shoes DAILY. Would never go for a walk without a cushioned insole, over my arch support. Really important to have proper suppor of the arch of the foot. By the way there are Foot Science Inserts you can wear in the shoe which really cut down alot of the discomfort - available through your Pharmacy. Cheaper than an orthopiedic! The heel gel inserts are a life saver. What you are suffering is all part and parcle of FM. There is a fantastic book on FM/CFS/ME by Dr. Devin Starlanyl and Mary Ellen Copeland. Available through local library. Details ALL the side effects and treatments (including foot and heel pain). Hope you can get it - knowledge is power! Good luck and better health! Good time to read a good book.

    Does anyone have red sores on their feet? My daughter has these and one physician said they are due to constricted veins, etc., These sores are just on the toes, and do burn.

    I just finished a magazine article about Arsenic poisoning in wooden decks, picnic tables and play areas. It seems the wood was treated with a dangerous combination of chemicals up until 2004 that can leach arsenic and make people sick.

    Although they now treat the wood differently, nothing was done about structures that were already standing...

    If you have a wooden deck or play area built before that time and if you see a particularly green tinge to the wood, this could be the problem.

    The magazine was Good Housekeeping..

    I know this is late, but I hope you read this.

    Hi, I do suffer from that too, can't figure out why, but after on cymbalta it has gotten better. I am finding that others here have so many of the same issues I deal with, I am amazed. I am here to support you and others, and I dont know what to say really, but I hope you can get some relief from that burning some how, I also have it in my hands as well.

    Hello there .. I have the same problem .. plus tingling .. also in hands .. but it has become a lot better on the Lyrica .. we are all so different with our individual bio-chemistry .. it is a lot of experiementing with meds and comfort tools ( ice packs .. heating pads etc .. ) to find some relief ..
    I hope you can get some answers and find solutions to it !
    Good Luck !
