I have pins & needles pain between my toes that started randomly 3 years ago. A year ago they became every day and docs have not yet been able to find the source. Pressure makes them worse. I have pain in the ball of my left foot. What feels like ligaments on the top of the 2nd and 3rd toes is tender almost all the time....it feels like someone dropped a crate on my foot. Sometimes when I step I will get a shooting pain from the ball of my foot thru the arch. Many times the arch feels tight and I will ahve a hard time walking because of the pain. I have pain while off my feet (pins & needles), numbness below the knees while sitting. I then will move my legs and feet which does help for a few minutes.
Doc tried arch supports for my shoes, no change. I had a MRI on my back which showed a bluging L5 & L4. Had a couple steroid treatments, laser treatment, acupuncture on back and the sciatia down left legs stopped but all other pain remians. I was tested for diabetes and I am prediabetic but doc says this would not create the pins and needles.
I was given a prescription for Lyrica and told to go back in 6 months.
