Burning in my toes

I have been without a serious relapse in a little over 2 years. For almost 3 weeks, 2 of the toes on my right foot (big and second toe) have felt like they were on fire. The heat is not like a rash but like literal heat. At times it feels down right fiery. There are also times that the toes tingle. Has anyone experienced this before? My problems have always been on my right side so I assumed early that this might be related to my MS.

I get the burns a lot. It is hard to describe to someone who doesn't have MS, but I know exactly what you're talking about. It would be much easier to explain if you could show them a rash or even a little red spot. My feet are a big problem for me. Besides the burning and tingling there are times the pain gets so bad I don't even want to put my feet on the ground cause I know it's really going to hurt. Have you tried Neurotin?

There are so many weird things with this disease. Last night at 3am I woke up with the feeling, like an ant, was biting the back of my leg. I got up, checked the bed & the back of my leg, of course nothing. This lasted about 10mins. Why is it always night when the symptoms seem worse:( You're not alone, I think we can all relate to your symptoms. Hope your feeling better soon.
Hugs,
Tammy

I used to take Neurontin but I went without insurance for so long that I have not seen a Neurologist for some time now. Now that I'm back on insurance I have a pre existing clause that is in affect until Feb. I may try to get my General Physician to slip something by.
