It can start in the middle of the day last a few days to this time weeks.

I have kidney that is dying not sure why it had lack of blood flow grandpa had kidney disease.
Dad has diabetes
I have been treated for lupus then stopes they thought ms it's all a mess

Hi ~ It sounds like you have neuropathy in the feet. It would PROBABLY be caused by the spine. What you describe sounds like nerve damage.

Have you had an MRI in the last year? If not, I'd ask for a new one with and without contrast material. Then after you have this done, take it to a spine specialist -- a neurosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon. I'm not advocating surgery, but you at least need an opinion.

There are antiseizure drugs that take care of nerve pain/neuropathy. These meds were found to stop the burning/stinging/pain of neuropathy. A couple of these meds are Neurontin (Gabapentin) or Topamax. Ask your doctor about possibly putting you on one of these meds.

I wish you the very best -- keep us posted on how you're doing. God bless. Hugs, Lee

Hi Momz,
Welcome to the NeuroTalk Support Groups.

Just wanted to leave the link to the Peripheral Neuropathy Forum here. You might find that a helpful place to ask some advice regarding your symptoms.

All the best to you.
