Ask The Experts
Do you have suggestions for a Parkinson's patient with shooting, intermittent, fairly intense tingling pain on top of my left foot? Thanks.
Thank you for contacting us. IPFH does not diagnose conditions or make treatment recommendations on line. We would recommend that you visit with your primary care physician or a foot health professional so that you can get properly diagnosed and treated. Your condition may or may not be related to the Parkinson's, so it is important that you get a diagnosis from a medical professional. Common effects of Parkinson's on the feet include stiff or cramped muscles, involuntary muscle contractions (dystonia), tightness in the Achilles tendon area, and swelling in the lower legs and feet, none of which you mention. Therefore, it is important that you consult a medical professional so that he or she can determine the nature and source of your pain. We hope you will do this, and that you will soon have a resolution for your condition.
