I have been suffering from this issue for the past 2 years. When standing still for about 30 seconds or more, my feet and toes begin to tingle and become incredibly itchy The toes and general area turn red when the problem is very aggravated. This can occur when I am wearing shoes and standing in line, when I am in the shower, or standing at the sink doing dishes. It varies in intesity throughout the year and I find that it's at its worst during winter -- it has gotten 100% worse over the last month as it got colder. I cannot pinpoint any trigger. I have seen a couple of specialists that have no idea what I'm talking about. I had an MRI to rule out pinched nerve. A neurologist did an EMG and it came up completely normal. Blood tests are normal. Podiatrist had no clue what to say. Any ideas? I searched the internet for similar symptoms but none seem to be exactly what I'm experiencing. I don't know what type of specialist I could turn to next and going to a general practitioner who has no idea what I'm talking about is a waste of time.
