Hi Iam new to these boards. I have had a strange sensation in the heel of my left foot for four months now. Have been to neurologist as I also have had my first occular migrane at the age of 50. Other symptons are frequent urination, and fluttering like feeling in arm .worst is in the foot the vibration is almost constant. No Pain any where just tightness in lowback and calves sometimes ache.scalp also sometimes feels very tight, now I am just noticing all symptons. Any of this sound familiar? Any advice would be helpful. Thank You so much and God Bless! Have been to foot doctor who says that it is tarsal tunnel, however what about the other symptons? Thanks Again Gemlee aka Ellice
Your symptoms certainly are suspiciously like those of MS. Have you told your neuro about all of the symptoms? Did your neuro ever suggest doing some MRI's to look for lesions? There are lots of MS symptoms and people present with different ones. It can be a difficult illness to diagnose. If you search the Net you'll find a lot of good information on MS out there.
I also can't help but wonder about a disc problem in your L4 or L5 region. That can cause funny sensations in your foot as well as stiffness in the lower back and legs. Frequent urination is also extremely common with an L5 disc problem. I could be way off base, too. You could have a couple of things going on. It can be so difficult to sort out.
The problem with going to a foot specialist or any specialist for that matter is that they often don't look at the whole person - most only tend to look at whatever part of the body they specialize in. You might do better to go to an internist or a neuro or even a very tuned in primary care doctor to help point you in the right direction.
I think I may have confused you more! I hope you get things figured out - it is not fun to have so many unexplained symptoms.
Re: Weird sensation in left foot Help Thanks Julie
Thanks so much for your reply. Yes I did have two mri with contrast done the last one being 4 months ago. They did find a infarct on the right parietal lobe , however the neurologit said that after careful review and no change from a year ago it might have been something that was always there or I could of had a little mini stroke a while back. He said he was looking for ms but did not think so. Next is a mri ofthe spine I guess. This sensation in the foot the vibration is un real and very scarey too. You just cannot get comfortable, including sleep. I do appreciate your quick response. Who knows??
Thanks again Ellice
