First off, my anti-body test for bartonella was positive a couple weeks ago.
For many years now, my feet, usually my left foot smaller 4 toes, will spontaneously blister over night, deep underneath the skin, on the pads. At least thats what it feels like. They become red, swollen, painful, and do not dissipate for several weeks. Eventually, months later after the skin has replaced itself enough times, the air bubble/s created by the blister comes to the surface, and peels off (if it was large enough, sometimes its not and there is no bubble).
Just to clarify, these are not
open-sore blisters like rubbing your foot on the inside of a boot for 12 hours, but they feel almost exactly the same. They are *very* deep blisters, with no visible exterior damage to the skin (only redness and swelling coming from deep in the skin).
Direct pressure on the blisters is not usually all that painful; side pressure, or putting a shearing force on the blister, is very painful.
Ive just dealt with it up until now. Something new has happened, and this is that this new round of toe blisters has spread to a small ring around my left heel. Its not directly on the heel, but slightly on the back and right side of it, so when you walk and roll your foot back upon taking a step, it pushes on the blisters. These heel blisters are quite painful, and feel, quality of pain wise, exactly the same as the toe blisters, just more intense.
Ive never had heel blisters accompany my toe blisters. Im not sure what could be causing this. Im wondering if this is bartonella related.
Has anyone else had spontaneous over night foot blisters like this before?
