Weird foot pain please help

Oct 05, 2015 11:39 PM

I've been having this weird pain in my feet lately. It's almost like the ligaments or tendons in the top of my food get so tight it causes terrible pain and my toes to stiffen and are not able to be moved. And it happens to both feet and at random times. Does anyone else have something like this?

Wrap them in heat. If that doesn't help make a really warm bath with Epsom salts and baking soda and soak them until the water goes cold. I have crazy foot pain too. I'm on muscle relaxers because my spasms are that bad. Those are things that help me. I've progressed to numbness, not pins and needles anymore, just not being able to feel parts of my toes.

Yeh that happens to me as well on top of my feet and the ligament in between the bones really hurts. My toes haven't stiffen up yet though. I can totally understand how you must be feeling. I just get scared that it might get worse and I won't be able to walk soon. I didn't have this pain 2 months ago and now it's constant 😌😒 I don't take any medication though. Lucy does the muscle relxers help and is there any side effects?

I don't have the tendons pulling, but under my toes hurting and both burning.

Yes, I have them also, They hurt so bad, I'm on three muscle relaxers a day but it doesn't stop the spasms and the pain but the hot baths help alot!

I have terrible foot pain too! I use Volteren gel I got from my pain Dr. I also use ice instead of heat. My pain can be in my legs or just in the tops of my feet. I've always had my Fibro manifest in my legs/feet. I have a TENS Unit and my Dr said I can use it on my legs, I just haven't yet...usually my Volteren works with my pain med. Good luck!! <3
