  • I have it too. It started in my balls of my feet and my toes, went to my heels and traveled all the way up my knees so far. they did bloodwork and tomorrow I visit my doctor. They ruled out thyroid and diabetes so far. My kidneys look fine and my vitaamin B levels are good. I was being treated for achilles tendonitis but not sure if that is it yet or not. Email me if you find out anything. It is annoying but not painful but it consumes my thought process constantly,Mcni1226@ptd.net

  • Sounds like you may have some nerve damage. I am a Below the knee amputee. I have tingling everyday.. some days are worse than others. But basically all my nerves from my foot are all balled up below the knee. It was explained to me that the reason I have the "phantom pains" is because the nerve was cut and my brain is still looking for it's end. I think you may have a pinched nerve in your back, hip or neck. I would definitely get it checked out. It could also be from poor circulation. OR you may have diabetes. During my research about the phantom pains, there are a lot of talks about people with diabetes getting amputations due to poor circulation and they express the tingling sensation before the amputation. Sooo...get it checked out. Could save your life or a limb.Good Luck!!

  • I have been suffering for years with non specific symptoms: facial numbness on the left side of my face - which has been looked into a little but no diagnosis - i get severve headaches related to this and also have tingling left hand and left foot. I have tinitus type noise in my left ear and if out shopping too long i start to stumble about and have fallen.After much perseverance I have fineally been referred to to specialist neuosurgen after a neck X-Ray it has shown severe arthritis in the neck (i am 26 years old!) with extra little bones shooting inward which is probably catching on nerves! I am awaiting an MRI back and neck and also a brian MRI (had a brian MRI 2 years ago but nothing obvious showed!)Dont let doctors palm you off - keep complaining!

Not really in pain but just feel plain weird!!To all who have the feet, back of leg and buttock tingling-These areas are all innervated by sacral (just above tailbone) nerve branches. go to a chiropractor and get your spinal alignment checked. misalignment can put pressure on nerves, or tense muscles around these nerves both causing tingling and or numbness. These problems can be from poor posture and extended sitting periods. So first step you can start right now, is stop sitting on your wallets.

  • Went for my EMG today - NOT FUN!! They put electrodes on various points on my leg and then send a "jolt" through. I thought doctors were "over" shocking people LOL!! Anyways the neurologist also put me through a battery of tests to see how my muscles react. The results were good. Also got my bloodwork back and all is A-okay there too. Was told it was either nothing (I like that one!), or a inflammation of the spine (don't like that one!). Anways I am going to be getting an MRI within the next 2 - 3 weeks.Should also note I started getting feeling back yesterday and am feeling better. I have been stretching my legs and back/abs and walking as well.Also getting lots of advice about seeing a chiropractor - my next step after the MRI.Will keep you posted.A.C.

  • Elavil is a miracle treatment for nerve damage and "fantom pain" from lost limbs please discuss it with your physcian.Sounds like you may have some nerve damage. I am a Below the knee amputee. I have tingling everyday.. some days are worse than others. But basically all my nerves from my foot are all balled up below the knee. It was explained to me that the reason I have the "phantom pains" is because the nerve was cut and my brain is still looking for it's end.

  • About six months ago my husband complained of numbness of his toes and then half way up his feet. He went to the doctor and the doctor checked his circulation and checked for diabetes and pulse in feet, all was ok, he then just said, come back if it gets up to your knees. My husband died March 30th of this year, he had diffuse b cell lymphoma, a very fast growing cancer. He went in the hospital the 27th of January and they were unable to diagnois him until March 3rd at that time he was already at stage 4 and was high risk for any treatment. 3 hopitals, 5 weeks until diagnoised and I still don't understand why it took so long to diagnois him. We weren't real concerned with his numb toes since the doctors weren't but I believe this was the start of the lymphoma. Please do not take this small annoying symtom lighty.

  • I have had these feelings off and on for about 15 years. I have had my whole body scanned. I have had my L5-S1 disc operated on about 25 years ago. I also had my C5-C6 operated on in 1997. The doctor don't tell you that when you have pain in your ciatic that never goes away. You have your good days and your bad days. In 1998 I have my C3-C4, and my C6-C7 operated on. None of my symptoms were relieved. I kept telling the doctor that I was still having tremendous pain in my left arm. So, in February of 2011 I had all my copies of my recent MRI's and my bond scan and went back to my neurosurgeon. First I had to see a Physician Assistant and when he went over my prior surgeries (22) he said you don't want to have another surgery. I told him I could not live with the pain in my arm so he decided they needed an X-ray of my neck. Which I did. On 4/27/11 I had surgery on my C4-C5 disc. It has been over two months now and I have 75% improvement. But now I am having the tingling, burning feelings from my left need to my waist. As for me I have had all the test I need. I was born under the lemon law. Murphy's Law, anything that can go wrong will at the worst possible moment. By the way my last name is Murphy.........

  • I also have numb/tingle feet, legs, right up to buttocks. Am going for an EMG test on Monday - haven't got blood test results yet. Not really in pain but just feel plain weird!!Keyo - I've had same symptoms for 2 years. Have gone to doctors, chiros, therapists -- to no avail. One chiro has told me that he thinks I have a herniated disc which is putting pressure on my nerves. Got an operation by a Neurosurgean to repair a damaged vein (which he said was causing imflammation in my spine) -- didn't resolve my issue. MRI's, EMG's, blood tests -- all inconclusive. Have you had any success in resolving your issues?
