I have severe burning and itching on feet and toes

Posted by alchedaz @alchedaz, Apr 12 3:39am

Hello good morning, am Louis.
I recently noticed a burning painful sensation under my feet, accompanied with sharp pain at my buttocks down to my thigh and calf. It comes with a little itching sensation though. Subsequently and gradually the pain around my buttocks, thigh, calf and feet disappeared. To my surprise my feet, toes, behind my feet begins to itch so bad, The itching is most times so sweet, that I end up injuring my feet because of the scratch. I had to go check my sugar level yesterday morning,
the results was 71 fbs.. Yesterday in the night the itching was severe again. Please what's wrong with me.

Do you have diabetes? Neuropathy can cause sharp, stabbing pains in legs and feet. I don’t know about itching though. Maybe you have 2separate problems—pains and itching. If itching is feet only, are you going barefoot? New shoes? Different lotions or ointments? Dog licking your feet? Athletes foot? Can you arrange to see a doc soon? they can run tests like biopsies and skin scraping to help diagnose this. I have a full body itch. I’m using an itch relief spray until I can get to a dermatologist

Well I checked my fbs sugar yesterday and it showed 71. So am not diabetic. Though I have not gone for test to check if am diabetic or not.

Hello @alchedaz and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I see that @ystoffregen has joined you to share some information with you.

You will notice I have updated the title of your post slightly to hopefully bring in other people who may also have had this experience.

Have you ever been diagnosed with neuropathy or any back/nerve issues?
