I am a 44 year old female. I have pain in my feet. Its numbness, tingling, sharp pain, and burning in both of my feet. Sometimes my legs feel like the are frozen in the inside. The pain started at the toes and now has moved up to the knees. The dr does not know what it is. my feet hurt worse in water. the pool is out of the question. i take quick showers. but my husband or daughter have to be there when i get out because i can barely walk afterwards they hurt so bad. Now i am contantly spraining my ankles because i can not feel my feet especially when i first get up. now my feet and legs are beginning to swell off and on during the day. i don't know if the swelling is from the heat or what. i don't drive any more because i cant feel my feet. I also have lower back pain. the mri and xrays show nothing. I have insomina and sleep apnea and depression. i am lucky if i sleep 2 or 3 hours a nite. i dont work because i cant stand or sit for long periods of time. i was denied disability. the drs have no answers for me. Its so fustrating to be in all this pain and losing the ability to do anything.

  • Cold it be something with the blood circulation to your legs? Have you been examined by a vascular surgeon?
