    I am wondering if anyone suffers from pains in the toes and tingling and some burning. I know it is not neuropathy as I have been tested. I would appreciate some feedback. Thank you.

    Hi-- just this morning i was inquiring about pain in feet, etc. (I also have pain in toes sometimes like someone is squeezing them too tight--also they feel and appear to be somewhat swollen so that i can't curl them up). Anyway the responses I got all said that they suffered from the same thing (also sensitive head with some bumps on back of scalp) and it just seems to be part of this DD. I do take pain meds which in all honesty allows me to keep moving if only at a snail's pace, so this helps somewhat. I hope this helps although to hear that it's just ANOTHER untreatable symptom of FM can be the pits. Sometimes when a symptom or symptoms really get me down I try to see the silliness of a grown woman standing in the grocery line on one leg to give the toes on the other leg a rest. Most often I'm not so upbeat. Hang in there---i'm finding we all have these weird things happening to perfectly "normal" bodies. Smiles and sunshine to you, Dozzer

    You are definitely not alone with this! I was just tested for neuropathy, too----negative. My toes & fingers frequently feel as if someone is pinching them, or pressing down on them. My feet always tingle. There are many neurological effects of this disease, the tingling, burning & extremities pain seems to be common, a lot of us report it. It is annoying, mine gets worse & better intermittently. Hard to live with, but seems to be common....

    Hope you feel better,
    Pam

    I do have pain in my feet, too.
    But I also know that tingling feet can be a symptom of diabetes, so it's good to be tested.

    for about three years. Sometimes I can't walk real well, and my sons (14 & 16) ask me why are you wobbling????? that really makes me feel better :) It may go away for a few weeks & then it's back. Like today it was more like a cramp, and I could not walk on my left foot. My wrists have been giving me alot of pain too. I will bring this up at my next dr's appt. I know my sons mean well, but they just don't understand the symptoms involved with fibro or mps. I think deep down they just want there energetic mom back. I would like her back too!!!! I do the best I can every day, and have learned not to push myself too hard. I say "no" alot more now. It makes me a better person:)

    Hi Jill, I looked up neuropathy tonight but didn't
    know I could be tested for it! Just lately I have
    had burning in the soles of both feet. I have RA,
    and diabetes since last year. I thought it was
    arthritis but RA dr says might be something else.
    How does one get tested as I'd like to know. If I
    have it I have to decide whether to hang myself
    or not. I came on to read about others who might have
    it, how they came to acceptance or did they, and how
    did they know. Oh gawd...I hope not. I have enough
    going already! But then we all do. NOBODY needs
    or wants it! I also have friends with cancer and they
    don't need that! this life can be the pits eh?

    I found great relief from using Venastat (horse chestnut extract). Hubby had to constantly apply great pressure to "tender points" on top of feet & inside ankle bones. But after taking horse chestnut extract (can be purchased cheaper at VitaminShoppe.com), that very deep pain is GREATLY reduced.
