Why? I'm being treated and am keeping it at bay for the most part.

I woke up one morning and my feet were asleep.

Now they tingle a lot more.

I try walking and that awakens them.

My doctor said don't worry too much as they are working otherwise. He's right -- be grateful for the health you got.

I always worry.

Thoughts?

Do you use artificial sweetners? Those can cause these kind of symptoms. Aspartame is even found in non sugar free gum and causes all kinds of problems for me.

Tingling feet (and hands) is one of my symptoms of electrical sensitivity. Were you on the computer or watching tv alot the night before you woke up that way? If I am on the computer too long or watch too much television, I will get the tingling.   D

My feet and hands go numb/tingle due to the neuropathy I have. The nerves in my feet are damaged really bad. Luke warm water will make them feel as though they are being burned. Very painful. The tingling and numbness comes and goes. So does the pain

I take it off. No tingling before the blanket.

Will give it a try. I will miss being warm.

this happened to me a lot in the beginning and got better with treatment. However the foot tingling got worse. I just started my last phase (hopefully) Flagyl an Amoxy been on it now about 1 1/2 months and the tingling in my feet have stopped. I am praying it is the Flagyl killing those little cysts, I hate taking though dealing with thrush right now and going through depression, low thyroid, insomnia. So back on thyroid, anti-depressants and sleeping meds. At least I don't have the pain I did, just my brain and emotions and hormones and all screwed up. Which sucks!!!!!
One day at a time~

anniemc69,
My sister used to roll her flagyl in olive oil to avoid getting thrush while taking it.

I am also experiencing thyroid issues right now. As well as adrenal fatigue. Been trying to balance every thing out and it takes time. I finally had a good week last week after several months of misery. Lots of anxiety, heart palps and other fun stuff!!

twingirl -

The thyroid issues symptoms are identical to LD. And LD loves the thyroid area -- according to research by my LLMD.

I hate the anxiety you get. Give up all caffeine and cut down on sweets.

Good luck!

Cure,
Thank you for the good luck wishes. I have given up sweets long ago and very rarely eat them. I have also cut out most of my caffeine as well. It really helps!!!

Take care,
dar
