Weird feeling in toes?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm not even sure what I am asking but at night, my toes tingle, burn, feel like they are curling up. The one that bothers me the most is the hammertoe repair one. The doctor took out the pin because it was starting to get infected. The only thing that helps is an ice pack. Is this normal? Is it because I don't have my foot up enough? Any ideas, suggestions? Help!

My surgery for hammer toe and big toe straightened was on January 21st. I've had a lot of problems, unfortunately and am in a hard cast at least until March 7th. cry

      Thanks, Cluckers. I'm so afraid that I've done something wrong and hurt them someway. I stay in bed most of the day unless I wander over to my computer which is about 5 feet away or to the bathroom which is maybe 20 feet away. Should I have a pillow under my floor more? Thanks for the support and good wishes.

    Hi there, I had my hammer toe fused and also the two small toes next to it, also my big toe aligned and bunion shaved 20wks ago I was in a hard plaster for 6wks. The little toes did feel very strange and the skin felt tight but are fine now and cause me no problem but my bg toe is still very painful. The experience that you are feeling could be perhaps cramp or maybe nerve damage but that should repair itself as time goes by. I wish you well and good luck.

      Hi Maureen,

      Thanks for the reply. I'm in a hard plaster cast as well and it is driving me crazy! I'm praying when I go back to the doctor that he will take me out of it. I'm so tired of being 'immobile'. I'm sure my anxiety has a lot to do with my 'discomfort' but it still worries me. I feel a bit better knowing it's 'normal'. Thanks for replying and for reassuring me!
