Hello everyone............ :-)
I'm here with another weird symptom, that I can't remember if I've mentioned before or not. ( bad memory too, lol)
Somtimes, like this morning, my feet feel real hot. Somtimes it's just in the right foot (my right side is always the one most affected it seems), but somtimes in both feet as it is now. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas or has experienced this as well?
I am just beginning to feel better from this last flare-up, although yesterday I was feeling like it was moving to my left leg and foot more. Today, still pretty painful to walk, but all in all I believe I'm on the road back to feeling better.
For me, the strangest thing is when I have these flare-up's and it affects only the right side of my body, it's almost exactly the right side of my body affected. Then when it affects the left side as well, well..........oh what fun. (smile)
I would appreciate any input anyone might have about this "hot" feeling in my feet. Thanks so much.
I am so in hopes that the MS Dr. will be able to give me some answers. Until then..........I'm still............ confused

Hey Paris Girl!

GOOD to hear u'r improving!!! I'm not certain (can't remember either haha), but i think one of my best friends experiences this as well. Her feet will be hot and will also itch...which was one of her initial symptoms. Of course MS affects u in so many ways and one very common way is in u'r sensory system...feet feeling hot. Try to hang in there and get thru this. Hopefully it'll go soon as well and u'll be on u'r way to feeling better all over. Take care and let us know how u'r doing.

Paris Girl,

My first symptom was hot, itchy feet! It usually doesn't come back unless I have been on my feet all day long. I have found that if I change the stimuli it helps some. I have tried ice packs, soaking my feet in cool water, and a pair of slippers that have bumps in them. Other times when my feet are just itchy I will put a pair of really fuzzy socks on and that helps.

As I am not dx yet I try whatever I can to comfort the symptoms. I don't take any meds other than naproxin or Ibuprofen. What I have found to be most successful is changing the stimuli. Pressure works well and cool things.

Hope this helps,

Things ruled out- TIA's, Lyme, Lupus, Crones, Narcolepsy, CFS, Fibro, Parkinson's, arthritis, and brain tumors.
Still nobody has answers.

Hey Paris Girl,

I don't have hot feet, I have icy-hot feet.  It is so weird.  I have the sensation that I have applied bengay all over my feet up to about the mid shin.  I call it "bengay boots".  It is kind of a cold and hot feeling all at the same time.  It is my residual symptom from a flare I had in April.  It is not painful nor do I do anything to treat it.  For the most part, I just ignore it.  I also seem to get it more after being on my feet long periods of time or if I am very tired.

Love and prayers,

Dear Friends,

Thanks to everyone for the responses. The input is always so helpful and appreciated. With all the weird symptoms, it's nice to visit with people who truly understand. Because for most people, or at least some people.........it's got to sound strange. The many symptoms, the pattern, how one day you feel great, then it can come with such a vengance. Anyways, thanks everyone.

Yes, I thought I was feeling better, but this evening I'm starting to not feel so well again. ugh! I do believe that whatever it is I have, MS or not, that I'm not recovering as completely as I once did after a flare-up. Oh well, tomorrow will be a new day. I'm thinking sunny thoughts.

The heat thing is strange. It's not constant or at least I don't seem to notice it all the time. It just seems to come and go, almost like I have them on a heating pad or somthing. As far as itching, somtimes I have that as well. But usually it's not at the same time the heat thing is going on.

I need to make my list ( my very long list , LOL ) to have ready to take to the Dr. when I go. The memory thing is really frustrating for me. It's so horrible, so I thought I'd be sure and list all my symptoms and the pattern they seem to usually go in. Maybe that will be of help to the Dr.

Again thanks. Wishing everyone a blessed weekend.
