Very sore and sensitive feet even on top of my feet.

Posted by Phyllis Wiggins on 5/18/01 at hrmin (048210)

My mother has very sore and sensitive feet, even on top of her feet. This cas bothered her for years. It seems to be getting worse and she can hardly wear shoes or walk. What could this be? What can she do to help the pain.

Thanks,
Phyllis Wiggins

Is your mother a diabetic.? Has any one told her she has neuropathy ?

Mother does not have diabetes and has never been told that she has neuropathy. She is 85 years old. Her legs swell on some days. Sometimes her feet are blue or redish (kind of like a bruise) at the spot where her pain has been. Her feet also itch sometimes as the pain is getting better.
