Is it possible to regain full feeling in the feet when I get occasional numbness, especially in toes of my right foot due to foot nerves gone crazy? It's not all the time and tests always come back OK, so likely a FM manifestation. Thanks for any input!

First of all, I'm not a doctor.  But, if you don't have neuropathy, it seems you could get full feeling back.  Maybe you have a pinched nerve someplace.  I know you aren't walking a lot because your feet are so bad so maybe the circulation is poor right now.  Once you get moving them they may be better.  Try massaging them.  Also, do the ankle circles and toe flexes.  Find shoes that allow you to walk.  You know the saying, "If you don't use it, you lose it."  Keep moving them and see what happens.  Let us know!

Hi Luvs-
Both feet and toes go numb on me since getting fibro. They go numb if I stand for any length of time, and once I get off them for awhile the feeling comes back.
When I first got the fibro, it was so bad I would not drive. Was too afraid I would not be able to feel the gas pedal or not be able to step on the brakes. :( GamJill
