SFN in feet

Posted by jchet @jchet, Jan 8 10:23am

In early evening both my feet start to swell and very warm sensation develops in my feet. The warmth generates so much heat that I rarely have more than a sheet and light throw over my feet at night…..and I live in N.Y. Where winter nights get pretty cold. More tolerable in the daytime. Anyone out there in the same boat?

@jchet, I have lymphedema in my legs and now wear compression socks during the day. Before being diagnosed my feet sometimes felt warm. I'm guessing it could be from the inflammation and swelling that causes the warm feet and not the small fiber neuropathy. I have idiopathic small fiber neuropathy with just numbness and I struggle to keep my feet warm now. There are several conditions that may be causing the swelling.

Have you discussed the swelling with your doctor?

My dermatologist gave me the best advice – to elevate my feet above my heart for 30 to 45 minutes twice a day. No more swelling in my feet, ankles and lower legs; and no more water pills.

I don’t want to scare you but my feet and about a foot above my legs was swollen. Then it just went away and about 4 months later my neuropathy started ? I have no idea if they are related so just take this as something that happened to me.
