I have had p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>numb</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>ness/tingling in my R <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>foot</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> x 9 weeks. Initial p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in occured after running, bruised x 2 weeks. Went to PCP to rule out metatarsal stress fracture- x-rays clear on 2 occassions. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wasan> put in a post-op boot to help keep pressure off and told to rest for 2 weeks. It has since been 9 weeks, and pain has radiated to other parts of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>footan> and front of ankle. also includes continuous "pins and needles" feeling. Pain oddly seems worse at rest.
I feel great in my back but 10 days post op started getting p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>numb</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>ness in my foor that seems to start with the big toe and then involve the whole an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>footan> and when really bad some of the lower leg. I had this pain at times pre op. My surgeon feels it is due to a stretching of the L5-S1 nerve rooots as they restored the disc space to original height after 7 years collapsed. I question this because it started so long ( 10 days?) after surgery and seems to start in the toes and spread up vs.
Recently the p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in has been accompanied by <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>numb</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd chill in the bottom of his right <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>foot</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, you can actually place your hand on his an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>footan> and feel the temperature difference, this is the same leg as the knee pain. He has had two MRI's and both orthopedic specialists assured us there were no torn ligaments, or meniscus etc. He had surgery on this knee for a torn meniscus 10 years ago. I can't find anyone to help him. Is this a neurological problem because of the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>ness?
I have chronic lower back and mainly in the "S1" area of my right an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>footan> along with an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>ness, tingling, burning like frost bight for about 4 years and it just seems to get worse. Sleepless nights.Full body tremors, headaches &amp; dizziness when taking 150mg 2x a day. Doctors say I have stenosis in the L4/5 area but not bad enough to operate. GOOD! however, I have been taking Norco, Tramdol, and 150 2x a day of Lyrica. I did take 50mg 2x a day and it did nothing.

Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd welcome to the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd neck support forum.

It effected my big toe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the path the bone followed up to the ankle.

Im condused and scared. It feels about 40% an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>. If i touch a hair on the spot i can feel it move. I can also feel pinches and stuff. Recently (the past hour) i have been getting buzzing feelings in my big toe. The feel like zaps. Hard to explain.
Hi I am 32 yrs old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd yesterday I started feeling a slight <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>numb</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>ness in right <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>foot</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>/ toes..and since then it moved up to the whole right side of my body. its not a tingling an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>ness but a slight loss in feeling on the top layer of my skin an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>ness.plus the right side of my head feels an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban> with a headache. Could a tooth ache be causing all this?
I am experiencing same sort of symptoms,like <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>numb</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>ness,nausea,lower back p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in,penile itching,testicle p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in etc...my 15 th week herpes 1&amp;2 negative,6 months hiv antibody negative,6 months syphilis test negative,Hep a,B,C antibody test at 12 weeks negative dianosed with uti infection with ecoli in urine and staph in semen... this infection is killing me...
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>froman> your description of symptoms, it seems that it could be a nerve irritation of back. By the reason of that nerves an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>froman> the spinal cord can be irritated causing leg p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>ness, tingling, or weakness in the leg or big toe. Other possibilities could be any sign of neuropathy due to vitamin deficiency, diabetes and chronic alcohol intake.
I am currently suffering an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>froman> upper abdominal p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in one hour after eating which I belive is a separate problem. Should I go get the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>foot</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> checked or just wait a month to hopefully return to normal. I know diagnosing ms requires a MRI but I'm afraid of the radiation.
It's mainly in my left <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>foot</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd for a few months, every toe on my left <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>foot</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wasan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>. now it mainly happens when I drive, as I drive a manual car, but my toes are not an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban> all the time now. I asked my doctor about it and she told me that there is really nothing that can be done about an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numban>ness. It just sort of has to go away on it's own, or not. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wasan>n't really interfering with my life, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wasan> just more of a weird feeling.
The discomfort is so bad that I can barely walk 200 yards without taking a rest to allow the p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in to subside. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd more recently I have noticed a constant <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>numb</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>ness in the left an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>footan> which also seems to ease when I rest up, almost like the blood is rushing back to my an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>footan>.
