Hi, thank you for your reply. I tried holding my breath but no luck. I'm a little discouraged because it doesn't sound like much can be done for this. the only thjng that seems to help me is accupuncture. it helps with managing the pain, but my toes still move and cramp up. its really freaky. i gave up on the neurologist i was seeing, im thinking of starting again to see a movement disorder dr.View Thread
I think I have this condition, I have high arches and have seismoiditis. About 7 months ago I developed severe pain in my left foot. I went through physical therapy for about 3 months without much success. About 3 months ago I notice my toes moving without me moving them. At first it was just slight twitches in one foot and it was usually when I would put my feet up and ice them. It is now in both feet and I notice it throughout the day. I feel a squeezing sensation in my foot before they start moving. The pain in my left foot is kinda a soreness on the top of my foot radiating to my ankle. I started to go to the acupuncturist and would highly recommend going. My acupuncturist practices five elements. In one session my pain level was at a five and she got me down to a one. She did this by putting needles in my right hand. It didn't last long but at least I got some relief. I'd say my pain level recently has been at about a two to three but it is pretty constant. I've had nerve conduction tests that suggest Tarsel tunnel. I'm also having constant tingling in my lower extremities and when I rest I have tingling throughout most of my body. My neurologist thinks it is caused by my anxiety and diagnosed me with hyperventilation syndrome, but when I asked about the pain in my foot and my moving toes. He asked me to bring a video. He also doesn't think my nerve conduction test is accurate. Very frustrating, maybe when I see him again in 4 weeks he'll believe me when he sees them moving. Now its happening more frequently I'll probrally just have him watch.
