I wonder if the inflammation in our body can effect the nerves? I'm still having some pain in my foot. I was looking some stuff up online, and it sounds a lot like Morton's neuroma. Same place on the ball of my foot, same kind of burning pain, that gets worse when I walk. Doesn't help that I also have flat feet. I'm just wondering if that is aside from my Crohn's flare, because it's interesting that it's all popped up WITH the flare.
 
Not a lot I can do about it right now. Going on vacation here in a few days, and needing to do lots of walking. It's not going to make things easy. Gonna bring stuff to make ice packs. Maybe wrap my foot? Take tylenol. Always something I tell ya!

I developed this a couple of years ago on Christmas Eve. My foot was so red and swollen. I did have some Nexcare Foot Cream that helped to relieve the burning sensation. I soaked my foot in epson salt several times a day. When the foot doctor finally opened after his Christmas Holiday break, he felt that it was a part of crohn's/remicade treatments. So, I just had to wait it out. Good Luck!

I get all kinds of neuropathies, burning and tingling.  they come and go.  lately mostly in my legs.  I don't know if the nerves in the abdomen are related to those nerves or if it's just systemic inflammation.  Unfortunately, can't see to find a cohesive opinion among researchers online, either!

Sometimes taking more magnesium and vitamin C helps.

Well... Since Crohn's is an autoimmune disease, I guess I really wouldn't be surprised...


But since you're not finding anything about it online... It could be that there's something else wrong. Have you been checked for other autoimmune diseases, Jen?
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Well having neuropathies looked in to might be something I need to do. Kinda goes with all that weird burning sensations I get in my fingers. Something to think about I suppose.

Try not to get upset or anything, Jen.... *I know the thought that there might be something else wrong can be very, very depressing... and it doesn't help matters when you're on prednisone* But... It's best to find out what's going on, wouldn't you say?

It could very well be Crohn's-related... You just need to talk with your doctors about it. And try not to stress out too much about it in the meantime (I know... very hard)... Because you're not going to know anything until you talk with the doctors and possibly get some tests done.

*Hugs* :)

There are so many things that go along with our DD that I wouldn't be suprised. Afterall, back in 2005 I developep a neuralagia along with a rash that outlined my Large Intestine. Docs just chalked it up to my IBD, trying to ease my fears of Shingles.

Well I'm actually handling it pretty well. I think as long as my lip doesn't swell up again, I'm good. LOL My crumby GI's office called to see if the rheumatologist they are referring me to has called me yet. Nope! So they give me their number and tell me to deal with it. Lovely! So I'll call them and get that going. It is upsetting, but what can you do.

There are several nutritional deficiencies that can bring about this tingling, and when I corrected them, they went down.  Doctors will not be aware of this, since there is no test or drug related to it.
