Evedently caused from West Nile I suffer from the following condition:
Swelling occurs in the knee or foot and travels to other extreamity. It is very painful and usuall accompanied by fever. The condition usually lasts for about a week and can reoccur from several weeks to several months. None of many test have been positive. When this condition is not present then my feet have a burning sensation, which I am assuming comes from nerve damage caused by this other condition.

Thanks for your help.

  • Sorry I don't have an answer but find your post interesting. My son got West Nile in 9/05 and also complains of a burning sensation in his feet. I have not noticed swelling; however, he often has a fever among a myriad of other symptoms. He was also diagnosed with celiac disease 5/06. Before he went gluten free with his diet, he had alot of bone pain, itchy skin etc. But again did not notice swelling.
