Numbness in feet?

I've had fibro for many years and have experienced, every once in awhile, a tingling or a numb-feeling in my feet. This time my toes, especially, have the numb feeling. I've had the problem where I have to sit while I'm combing my hair and putting on makeup in the morning. I actually have to get a chair and sit down until I'm finished. My right leg bothers me more this time. I can barely walk until, as my husband puts it, "I'm up and rolling". It feels like I can actually feel the blood rushing through my legs. Does anyone ever have this problem? My next blood test (next month), I'm going to ask to be checked for diabetes. I have no other symptoms, but who knows???

Re: Numbness in feet?

hi loretta,
have you been tested for neuroposy as well? ive had fibro for many many years, but it wasnt till about mid may that i started having problems with both feet. they hurt so very bad and felt tingling and numbness as well. i was diagnosed with neuroposy, and have another appt with him in early sept. now my ring finger on my left hand is hurting so bad and has been for over a month now straight, but thats not all, there is tingling and has been numb on one side of the finger, top tip area, its been numb straight thru. it hasnt gone away and feels very weird. Hurts like HECK on the inside, but the outside part is numb. im wondering now if i have neuroposy in my finger. yes , please suggest that you get tested for diabetes as well, since diabetics ,like my mom, suffer with alot of neuroposy problems, especially in the feet.

Hi Loretta,

It's reasonable to make sure that numbness, which could be a symptom of peripheral neuropathy, isn't resulting from diabetic condition.

Vitamin B12 deficiency is fairly common & can result in similar symptoms. Some people have had wonderful improvement after taking sublingual B12, the methylcobalamin type, each day for a month to 6 weeks.

Best wishes.
