Peripheral Neuropathy?

Wasn't expecting this; a week or two back I woke to feel a burning in the soles of my feet and now I've got a tingling at the site of where I fractured my leg in 2000.

All I can think is that it's been brought on by this 'cold snap' (what we used to call winter) in spite of wearing thick woolly socks at night. The other factor will be that I'm using a wheelchair around the house (and sitting still too long) to avoid putting stress on the arm joints which got OA from the crutches I used to save the leg joints - and so it goes round and round..😵‍💫

Has anyone else experienced PN and did it come on so quickly? Perhaps more importantly did it go again? I have to admit it's pretty frightening at the moment.

    Hi @N1gel ,

    You might already know about this, but here’s a link to the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy which has a section on support groups and also on helping to manage the condition:
