    Ouch, that does not sound too good. I have no idea why your feet feel like that , the closest mine get to that is a prickling feeling, like they are falling asleep. I also have shooting pains in my rt foot , but that is from the sciatic nerve.

    Do you mind me asking what kind of medicine they have you on, maybe you could ask the doctor what side effects are

    Hope you feel better soon

    Floridamarlen:
    I have the same problem. It is only when I get up in the morning. As soon as I start walking it goes away.
    I hope you find an answer to your problem. There could be so many causes, but I would blame it on FM/CFS (for me).

    B5 (Pantothenic Acid) for my painful feet, I take it with B6 and a Bcomplex. It hasnt cured the pain but I can walk again.

    My doctor says I might have dead nerve ends on my feet like people with diabetes and alcoholics get but I am neither. I'm in UK and dont get tests easily.

    love

    Look for someone in your area that is a Nikken rep and ask to BORROW a pair of magnetic insoles for one week. If they work, buy them, if they don't, then just hand them back and continue looking for a solution.
