PF but with questions

Posted by Carrie on 7/30/02 at 17:02 (091023)

I have been suffering with PF for nearly 2 years. I have done all the same treatments as everyone else. I did taping, ortho's 1 shot, and ice exercise and proper foot wear and anti inflams. I have also worn a short leg cast 2 timess! Now they are doing an Electro- Acuscope treatment, which does not seem to be helping. The one question I would like answered, is I lose feeling in my toes and at times feel prickly, like bugs crawling. Hard to explain, but with all the pain I am used to some times it feels like this. Is this normal? I have been having this a while now, before the 2nd cast was put on, but the feeling is back and it is bothersome. Any help would be great! Thanks Carrie

How often do you have the feeling you describe? Is it all over your feet or just on the bottoms of your feet?

Just on the bottom of my feet. The top of my foot swell in the pm. The numbness in my toes , usually the last 2 toes, is becoming an everyday thing. My problem is the dr. I am seeing, wants me to finish my Acuscope before we do anything else. I have 7? more weeks at 1 time a week visit. Thanks
