Foot pain like a bee sting
50copcar91 posted:
Sometimes I get sharp, bee sting-like pains in the arch of my foot. Seems like I saw a commercial on TV about this but didn't pay attention to what it was about. I am 51 without diabetes, but my dad has type 2. Is this a sign of something?

It could be anything including falling arches. If you are worried about diabetes I would make sure to talk to the doctor about it and have lab work done. Best of luck to you. I hope the pain goes away. Cora

Hi, this doesn't sound like the pins and needles of diabetic neuropathy, which usually occurs in the toes first, then spreads throughout the feet. Your description could apply to a number of things, from a range of "not typical" neuropathy, to plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the tissues over the muscles and tendons in the foot. The only way to be certain is to see your health care provider or foot specialist for a thorough examination. Take care, Laurie

Thanks to you both. Norm
