  • Legs aching and feet tingling

    With my flares I am having aching legs (hamstrings) and tingling in my feet. Anyone had this and find anything that helped? I'm getting an appointment with Physical Therapy asap to see if they can help. Thanks, SusF

    No, I don't get tingling in my feet but my thighs feel sore when I get up out of the car.

    However, I do have tingling in my two end fingers in both hands and both elbows are weak.

    I went to have some x-rays done and I have carpal tunnel and severe nerve damage in my arms.

    I also have a bulging disk in my neck along with arthiritis,
    and a bone spur. My whole body needs a complete overhaul,lol.

        My upper legs, esp inner thighs, and my lower back would get very achy and fatigued when I was symptomatic. It does seem to be a common IC symptom. I dunno about the tingling feet! Hopefully you'll hear from someone else who has dealt with that.

          Hmm... I don't have the tingling feet, but I do get achy thighs (all the way around them) and an extremely sore lower back when I'm flaring, pretty much like Briza does. Hopefully someone will come along with a suggestion that helped that symptom...

          *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
          *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
          *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
          *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).
