My mom has that, it eventually went up to her ankles. She later developed shingles. If you have not been vaccinated you may want to talk to your doc about it, once you get it you can't get vaccinated. Not that its related, but it does seem an odd coincidence so I thought I'd mention it. Diabetes and back surgery cause this and it can be very very severe, like my mom has. I'm trying to get her to switch to klonopin, which works for restless leg. She is neurontin, which is not working, and lyrica, both which she doesn't like and doesn't want to take due to psych side affects. Restless leg can feel like that, and is horrible, feels like bugs under your skin, and it happens at night. The rest of my peripheral neuropathy has gone from bad pain to numbness now, guess the damage is done. Hope you get some help and feel better soon.
