I am new to this forum. I am suffering with burning and painful soles of both feet. It started with cramps in both legs and now has become very hard to cope with. I get it throughout the day and nearly all night, and I either cannot sleep with it, or it wakes me up. I also get shooting pains in my feet. I have suffered from Pernious Anemia in the past, but after a course of injections of Vitamin B12 this got better. I am confused about this as I did not think that once someone suffers with Pernious Anemia it is incurable. I have read somewhere than painful feet ie. burning soles of feet can be caused by Pernious Anemia, I also get tingling in my left hand for no apparent reason, but this complaint is not constant and is not bothering me that much. I suffer with Oesteo Arthritis and some Rheumatoid Arthritis, to give the reader the full picture of my health. I am generally in poor health, and am also asthmatic, I have recently these past few months been put on Atrovent for my breathing problems, I am wondering if this inhaler has any side effects that may be contributing to this. I would value any sort of advice. I do not have a good local doctor for advice for this.
