tarsal tunnel symptoms

Posted by renees on 3/27/05 at 06:39 (172014)

A neurologist diagnosed tarsal tunnel syndrome after a nerve test on a machine. My symptoms were: (1) tingling sensation in legs (2) numbness in toe especially big toe and (3) swelling in ankles. I read somewhere that if you pressed your thumb against your ankle bone and it left a dent you should see your doctor. I do not have pain. I do not have any fever. I am wondering if the nerve testing machines (can't remember its name) can mis-diagnose?

Have you been tested for diabetes?
