anyone get a burning itching feeling in your feet? its not a fungal infection I had dr check it. drives me nuts
Estelle @A myRAteam Member, I think you will find it’s inflammation. That was one of the first bizarre indications i had something wrong. It felt as though I was wearing socks when I wasn’t and the feeling crept up my ankles over time. I had many tests to find out what was wrong. I would get up in the middle of winter and run cold water over my feet to ease the burning (like sunburn inside). My Rheumatologist sent me for a bone scan and that picked up high levels of inflammation in both hands and feet. I still get it even on all the meds, Methotrexate, Enbrel etc. and my blood tests still reveal high inflammation so higher dose Methotrexate hopefully will make it subside.
Mention it to your Rheumatologist and discuss your blood results with him as they will indicate if you have high inflammation. Good luck. I have added you to my team so I can see how you get on. Mary
I itch a lot. Cortisone cream has become my friend. It is bad a t night. Just another thing RA does to us!
I have burning in my legs and feet , It’s as if my feet are on fire . They are not hot to touch it’s inside. I thought it was just me . I will try some of the remedies mentioned.
