IDK how to explain it, but I am SICK of it. HELP!!!!
Hi mammabear I too am suffering the same as you. I am due to see a neurologist on 16th April.
I have a feeling of very cold feet in the day and a slight numbness not like pins and needles but when I lay down to sleep at nighy ,my feet feel swollen and my toes feel like big sausages and my feet burn like crazy. On looking at them they look normal.
If I manage to get some sleep, on awaking, my feet feel like concrete in that my toes are dry and heavy like concrete. I cannot move my legs and feet for a few seconds and I manage a bit at a time.My toes go a purpley red when put to ground...I know it sounds silly but my honest thoughts about the feelings that I experience is that I am turning into concrete as it sometimes goes to the back of knee.
