In June of 2017 I started having CTS symptoms in right, then left hand. A month later tingling in my toes begin, followed by the sensation my toes are freezing and pain associated. In Aug I was diagnosed by my neurologist with carpal tunnel in both hands and tarsal tunnel in both feet as well as other compressed nerves. Nerve conduction tests were inconclusive. All blood work looking any underlying causes came back normal. I'm still at a loss as to how I could develop multiple bi-lateral compressed nerves at the same time. Nobody can give me a clear answer. I'm 44, otherwise healthy, not overweight, non-smoker, don't drink etc...
My CTS is what it is. It sucks, but really only hurts when I type (like this). I'd imagine its from 20 years doing data entry. But the TTS (or whatever is happening in my feet) is what really scares me. Current symptoms: pain in toes, feels like toes are cold (not to touch); pain in heel, arch and ball of foot, worse when standing for long periods; very tender area on inside of ankles, just below the ankle; low grade tingling over entire foot that feels like an invisible sock.
Had nerve block injections done on both ankles last week, so far no relief. Every pair of shoes I try seem to hurt. I've bought 7 pairs of shoes since Sept and tried at least 4 different orthotic insoles for high arches. Pain seems to reset somewhat with sleep and/or keeping feet elevated. I've tried just about every anti-inflammatory known with no success.
Been to 6 different Drs in past 6 months - general, neurologist, pain management, rheumatologist and 2 different orthopedic drs. Currently taking Gabapentin (can't tell it helps other than helping me sleep).
Starting to feel a bit hopeless at this point. Heading back to neurologist next week for a "quick" follow-up.
