My toes just started doing this a few weeks ago. It seems that someone has a match to my feet.
Have your doctor rule out PAD Perepherial Artery Disease. I too have had pain for a year, thinking that the toes are painful due to having been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis. Thinking this was the cause, doctor decided to rule out PAD before having any surgery for S.S. Just had ultrasound and I am waiting my results.
I will keep you posted if this is the cause, or they have found another cause. Please check w/doctor about ultrasound on your legs.
p.s. Dr could not find a pulse in my ankles (foot) so this is why she is also suspecious of PAD.
Thank you post! Unfortunately, a doctor or expert cannot legally provide a diagnosis or treatment recommendation online. It would be best to contact your healthcare provider directly.
