I've been having trouble with aches in both feet and sometimes burning. I don't have diabetes. I don't have pain in the legs or back. Is it possible that too much walking has bruised my feet? I have relatively new athletic shoes so I don't think that's causing the problem. I welcome discussion and advice.
There is no way for anyone on an internet message board to know why you are having these symptoms. The possible causes are endless. We do not know your medical history. Guessing will not resolve anything for you. If this is serious and persists you need to see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.
To anyone who is watching this thread,here is the diagnosis. Very high arches plus tight calf muscle. Doc prescribed custom orthotics plus exercises. He feels the orthotics will work and I'll wish I had them years ago. Also said he didn't think meds were needed. So we will see.
I had the exact symptoms as you are having. i went to a neurologist and he said it was neuropathy. which is damaged nerve's in the feet. he prescribed lyrica which has worked very well for me. not 100% but way better than it was. hope this helps.
My Dr. did a complete blood work up. I'm not for sure what you call it maybe a emg test of both legs. it runs small electric currents through both legs and feet. then like i said he put me on lyrica. which has helped very much. you can google it and check it out.
Thank you for responding. Can you tell me if a neurologist did your workup. So far I went to a podiatrist who says I need orthotics due to very high arch. I am wondering if I should have gone elsewhere. Do you have diabetes? This is a common cause of our symptoms. I do have have diabetes.
