Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

it sounds like a nerve thing in your foot

Dr. David :

like a pinched nerve or possible neuropathy.

Dr. David :

you might need to wear more supportive shoes and avoid going bare foot.

Dr. David :

you might need to stretch the soles of your foot to help stretch tight muscles.

Dr. David :

it could be from damaged nerves or neuropathy in your foot, so medications like neurontin or lyrica might help.

Dr. David :

you could also have poor circulation into your foot. an ultrasound of your foot and lower leg can check for circulation problems.

Customer: Would that not mean cold feet as I do not have this feet are normal temp
Dr. David :

right, so most likely normal circulation in your foot.

Dr. David :

but could be a pinched nerve or inflamed fascia of the muscle of the sole of the foot.

Dr. David :

have you tried stretching the sole of your foot

Dr. David :

or icing after long walks.

Customer: I will do tonight and try many thanks
