PF New Symptoms

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi All,

I've had PF for a very long time in both feet. Last night I had pins and needles in just three of my toes on my left foot which I thought would be gone by this morning but it hasn't subsided. Does anyone else suffer this with their PF?

    Hi, not sure I can be much help to you but I suffer this but don't have pf but have a plantar fibroma. I have a lot of pain in my feet. Have the pins and needles you describe now. No specific diagnosis but think mine is related to an auto immune disorder. But what helps me massively is hydroxychloroquine. Controls the pain amazingly and the pins and needles. I was also tested for peripheral neuropathy but that was negative. Have you been checked for that?

      Hi Margaret,

      Thank you for you advice. I will do some research. I haven't had any tests done apart from physio saying I have the classic symptoms of PF. He's talking about potentail injections but I'm putting that off and waiting for an appointment for inserts to be made specifically for me to see if that helps any. Thanks again x

    I've been there and spent lots of $$$ for @ 3 years... 2 podiatrists, prescription creams, orthopedic doctor, PT, CBD roll on, and several types of suggested inserts.

    My suggestions:

    see a doctor ONCE for a diagnosis

    calf stretching exercises are a must

    freeze a water bottle and roll it underfoot when you're sitting around... a tennis size ball helps also

    stick to a good comfortable sneaker (running style) with arch support

    use gel heal inserts

    stay active... don't just stay off your feet

    Over time, you will notice improvement.....with lots of diligence and patience!

    Wish you well!
