Mine has been this way -- off and on -- since I contracted Lyme.

I wake up to it.

Advice? weight loss?

hopingToFindCure, I believe both Lyme and Bartonella can cause this.  It should get better with treatment, but it can take time.

I've had this for a long time. Cipro helps mine too. Exercise also may help reduce sensitivity of the feet, but make sure you have appropriate footwear and don't over-do. Take care,
Chronic Lyme Disease, Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut issues (dysmotility, non-specific inflammation), UCTD ("Secondary Lupus-Like Syndrome"), Osteoporosis, Anemia, Lymphopenia, intermittant Pancytopenia, chronic malabsorption/malnutrition, etc.; G Tube; Currently TPN-dependent.
Meds:  Zofran, Pulmicort, Heparin (to flush PICC line), IV Cipro (for G-tube site infection).

Mine went away after going on Rifampin. I was on this for about 4 months - pain subsided after probably about 6 weeks. I did not test positive for Bartonella but assume I did have it (hopefully that is past tense).

It sounds like bartonella - sore feet in the morning. Check your morning temperature to see if it is slightly elevated. With lyme it is always below normal.

Interesting you guys. You've given me a lot of food for thought.

I should check the morning temp.
