Burning in feet

Morning all , hoping things are not to bad with you all this morning?

I was wondering if any of my fibro friends are experiencing a burning and tingling sensation in feet and legs ?.

I am only having shooting pain now and then in feet.This tingling ,burning has been with me for the past week.Thought l would ask you all first as l have the doctors on Wednesday about my bladder.

I am quite new to this was told last month and left to find out about fibro myself. Oh went to have a scan on my hands good news the bones are not crumbling ...the pain is just fibro....

Also had a DEXA scan last week and letter came yesterday with news that l have osteoporosis in lumber spine also the hip. I had a call from our Dr and they are phoning me Monday .

Had a grate October 40th wedding anniversary, 60th Birthday, Fibromyalgia,Osteoporosis.And the government say l have to work till l am 66. Can not see that happening some how.

Well that is it from me if you can help with the tingling would be grateful.

Buy for now .Hope .

yes, I get the burning and stabbing pains in my feet. I take amitriptylene for it which helps.




Hi Hilly ,thank you for you reply.hoping you have a good day xx



I am so sorry to read that you are experiencing such problems and I genuinely hope that you can find the answers that you so desperately desire and deserve. Burning feet can be a sign of so many differing medical conditions that it would be better to discuss the issue with your GP or Medical Specialist.

I recently had a DEXA scan and was diagnosed with Osteoporosis and I was given 70mg of Alendronic Acid that I take once weekly and another supplement called Accrette D3 which I take twice daily. There is an interim stage whereby it is referred to as Osteopenia (not full blown Osteoporosis) whereby it is easy to avoid breaks by taking the medications, so please do not worry too much at this stage, as the DEXA may show low level degradation?

I want to wish you all the best of luck with your GP appointment.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Thank you for your reply . Sleep well



Good morning I have had fibromyalgia now for year's and it doesn't get any easier. I also have osteoarthritis in my joints and osteoporosis in my spine and hips. My good keeps trying different medication . I have been on morphine tablets and the patches. I was telling my doctor last week that I feel like someone is pouring hot water through my body .and if anyone touches me .it's like a tuning fork going in spasms around my body. That's the only way I can describe it. My G.P. says it is all part of fybro and it's to do with the nerve endings in your body. Every day I get up I have a different pain to look forward to. No one understands the pain we are going through.unless they have to endure it. I am married and in my 60s but I always feel so alone with this illness. Gentle hugs x


Hi I get tingling in my hands anf feet and ankles and rists allways hurt to x


Thank you Shirlalee for getting back to me .l am so sorry that you are in so much pain .l am not to bad at the moment it always seems strange that you can can wake up and find so much pain in parts of your body you did not know you had. At the moment I find the need to sleep more of a problem.l am still at work and some days I just want to stay in bed.

Would like to pack up but we need the money.

I do know what you are saying when you say that you feel alone . My hubby does not think that there is a problem,he just says that the doctors just says you have this or that as they do not know the matter is .

I am so glad that this site is here ,and every one has bee so kind with their replays to questions that are asked.

I do hope tomorrow is better than today for you .

Sending gentle hugs back x
