Sponge Feet, Tingling and Burning: What can help me to get sleep?
I haven't a clue if that is what I have but when I lay down to sleep my feet and legs start to tingle, burn, pins & needles and my feet always feel like a sponge or rubber. I have neck and back problems and don't know if that can make this happen or if it is neuropathy. My feet started to be like that in 2019 and the symptoms lasted for 4 months, then went away and now it's back again. Neurologist testing which I had 4 tests done in 2019 didn't provide much info except degenerating disks. So is there anything I can take for this so I can sleep at night? I toss and turn to make the numbness go away. One thing the neurologist stated was I had carpal tunnel syndrome in my right arm and that is it. I notice my hands are weaker now. I exercise twice a day, 7 days a week and once in a while will skip a day or one of the exercises but not often. Also do back and neck exercises. My feet used to be cold all the time then I started to use toe alignment socks and now my feet are not cold but I still have the sponge feeling and it's worse laying down then standing up. I'm almost 80 so I don't know what it is. Doctors don't seem to have any solution except say it is neuroptathy and nothing more. No treatments, no suggestions, nothing.
