I got a piece of nail like tool in my feet and that has caused me to have a surgery cutting my big toe off and a portion of the bottom of my feet. It is not healing well, then my other foot got infected real bad; I can hardly walk now.

My husband has diabetes II and suffers badly at night with terrible pain that starts from under the toe tip of his foot above the bridge not towards the heel but on the upper side of the foot.

I have got foot calluses over one year now and it is taking a long time to heal, I started taking bed rest and also antibiotics. Now it has finally started to heal faster.

For the last year I have a problem with my feet. They both feel like I have dried egg yolk on my feet (top/bottom), up to my ankles. They feel warm all of the time. I have asked 6 doctors about this problem. They have all checked pulses in my feet, and they say that my pulses are strong. They have no Idea as to what is causing this in my feet.

get this problem in my foot that feels kind a worm or something moving on the nerve ends. It happens mostly at night. This will last for about two hours. It is not a pain but more like something messing with the nerves . I am taking meds to help control my sugar.

I have pain in the bottom of my foot. It feels like some kind of tendon or something getting pulled. I will even notice it sometimes when bending over.
