    For the past few months....well possibly like that past year....I have been experiencing weird sensations on the bottoms of my feet and the palms of my hands. They started on my feet and I thought it was muscle issues from the orthodics I started wearing, until it moved to my hands. I get these weird, swollen, painful lumps in these places and it almost feels like my muscles itch. I went to the doctor yesterday for what turned out to be strep throat and I had the issue going on on my hand so while I was there, I asked the doc. She said it looked like hives and that something I either ate or touched was causing them. She said hives like the soles of feet and palms of hands. Anyone heard of this? I have no clue what I can be allergic to. I guess next allergist appointment with DS, I will make one for myself as well. Ugh.....

    Huh, I have not heard that about the soles and palms. It does sound like a good question for the doc next time around. Let us know what they say! And sorry to hear about the strep -hope you are feeling better now!
