Posted by thomas on 5/19/04 at 09:28 (150827)

i did a lot of walking in cyprus while on holiday.
then one day. i awoke in acute pain. my foot was rigid.?
when i bent my foot.either up or down .pure agony. electric shocks shot through to my heel. the hospital x rayed my foot & nothing was found wrong.
3 monthes on. the bottom of my heel feels very numb. also very painful
being diabetic _type 1. i was a bit worried. so i went to my doctor he
said it,s nothing to worry about. keep of your feet.
he had no idea. what was wrong whith my foot. after doing the tap test on the inside of my ankle. electric shocks shot through to my heel. thanks to this site. i now know it,s_ TTS. & tell my doctor.
many thanks thomas.

You really need to find a new Dr.

Also, please consider researching Diabetic Neuropathy.

Good Luck!
