For the past several weeks, I've noticed some numbness in my feet. It's sporadic- sometimes it's worse, sometimes it's completely gone for a time ,etc. But overall, it's been getting worse. Instead of a few patches of numbness for a little while, that comes and goes, now it's an almost constant state of "something is numb" with only the severity and extent varying. This morning, I felt some numbness in my knee- my foot wasn't as numb as it's been at times, but it's never gone up my leg before! It was itchy, the way it  feels when Novocaine is wearing off.  

I've discovered that it's better when I've been active and is worse when I've been at rest- it's typically worst first thing in the morning, and it often is worse, or at least unchanged, after an epsom salts bath. Other triggers are when my sandals are strapped too tight- I'm constantly re-adjusting them so they don't hurt my feet. I need to wear them much looser than they're designed to be worn.

I've also been "under the weather" all week, and I don't know whether or not it's related to the numbness. I've had a sty in my left eye, and some eye itchiness in  both eyes (left eye worse.) That's better as the day goes by and worse in the mornings. I've been fatigued (what else is new?) and congested, and I'm not sure if I've been having trouble hearing or if my daughters have been mumbling a lot since they came home from camp on Tuesday.

Does anybody have any clue what might be going on with my body? What could be causing the numbness and how can I make it go away? I'm not due for my annual physical for several months- is this something to schedule a "sick visit" for?

I've had this on and off in hands and feet for a couple of years during the healing I am doing.  In my case, I'm pretty sure it is related to the cranial and spinal nerve healing.  I have waste being removed from fatty tissues as part of the healing and the symptoms are worse when several of these deposits are sore (active) at once.

Do you ever see a chiropractor?  My first thought is nerve impingement but I'd say that if you
didn't have other physical complaints at the same time........but also remember that
magnesium oil detoxifies the body.  Are you drinking plenty of water? How about circulation?  Getting
enough exercise?  Does it improve any when you're walking?  

The fact that you have a stye, feel tired, itchy eyes and congested implies allergies or even virus to me...and perhaps it's something as benign as eating dairy...compounded with airborne mold. Maybe
a blood test at the doctor's office to see if you're fighting off an infection is worth exploring.

Seems silly to wait so long for a well visit when you're walking around with symptoms that a doctor
might be able to help you with...rule something out.  Might be a relief to hear what's not wrong...

Are you eating nutritional yeast on a regular basis?  About a year ago, I started sprinkling it on food every day, about 1 tsp/day.  After a few months, I developed a numbness on parts of my feet and lower legs.  I read on this site about its' similarity to MSG and possible neurotoxic effects.  I stopped eating it a few months ago and the numbness gradually diminished over a few weeks until it is now completely gone.

I got numbness and tingling from solanine when I wasw eating alot of peppers of all kinds, including red pepper flakes. Nightshades are not good for me though most are beneficial on SWAMI. It took awhile for it to go away but if I eat a little now, the tingling comes back for a brief time

Ohhh ... poli-neuropathy is very unpleasant to get, and can will be painful after some time.. It is diabetes related to begin with, weight might make a difference, I would start with TC and go from there..

I would advise to switch to plain trehalose as sugar for all sugar you might use..  

No twitching yet when resting? at night? YET?   Poli means also all over, what is going on in one place also goes on in the brain ..  I would not yet make a doctors visit, they have only some tests to see how far it progressed.. no need YET.. this might stay or if you can further change the diet then it might be much less..

Chiros make little if any differences unless it is only in one leg..

Doctors have few medicines to help, but it is bad to have it so young, eventually it gets so bad that you can not feel the floor or the gas pedal.. so preventing it will make a big difference..

I have a way to make a big difference in that condition, call me about it.. at least for a test.. I will pm you with my number....



Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Pressure on the nerves in your lower back from a bulging disk or arthritis can cause numbness in legs and feet without there being any pain in your back.  

My husband deals with this continually.  If he lifts too much or does something that compresses his spine (like running after the dog), he will have numbness for several days.

Candida?

Numbness / Tingling in Limbs
Typical Complaints: Pins and needles in the legs, hands feet or arms. Numbness in the fingers, toes, hands, feet , arms or legs, or a tingling or pricking sensation, a creeping feeling under the skin.

Candida relationship: When Candida becomes systemic (it buries through the gut wall and enters the blood stream) it leaves tiny holes in the gut wall which then allow product from the bowel into the blood stream. This is what doctors call gut disbiosis. This sets our body’s alarm bells ringing as product from the bowel has entered the sterile environment of the blood stream and the risk of contamination becomes the primary focus. In addition to this emergency, the holes also allow tiny food particles from the intestines to pass into the blood which we know can produce food sensitivities, which in turn provoke an inflammatory response in the body. It is this response which can result in the numbness or tingling associated with Candida.

Once the gut problem has been eradicated, the numbness/tingling will subside and cease to be a problem.

And this might be worth reading

Ruthie still can't convince you to make a visit to Bridgeport to the University?

Maybe you would qualify for a special rate-- get your SWAMI tweaked to your special needs.

If I was Ruthiegirl.. I would most definitely try some B and see if it will go away..

Quoted Text


Yes, worth reading.. but the cure is in BTD and Ruthiegirl is on it .. so I wonder, does Trehalose complex also eliminate the Candida fungus or maybe eliminate it?   How could we know? anyone using TC and has Candida? seeing differences?  

I think TC is helping with my neuropathology..

How would a person know they have Candida fungus over-growth?

Yes, I've been eating a lot of nutritional yeast lately as it's a diamond on my SWAMI. I could stop that and see if it makes a difference.

I've been taking B-50 complex for several years, plus methyl b-12 for the past several months. I've been using topical magnesium oil for over a year as well- for the past several months, I've been using that once a day plus taking an epsom salts bath once a day- I've been too tired to do so at times but it's been fairly consistent for weeks.

I'm not about to start using trehalose "for all my sugar needs" when I don't use sugar. Some days I might use a teaspoonful of molasses or agave, but no more than that.

I don't think it's a problem with peppers, as I've been eating those for years with no problems.

I can only think of two new things in the past few months:

1) Eating a lot of nutritional yeast to try and get some of my B vitamins from food, rather than all from supplements.

2) Drinking red wine daily. It's supposed to be beneficial on my SWAMI, and I'd been drinking about 2 ounces each night. But I noticed that the kind of wine I bought contains sulfites (I have yet to find any kosher organic wines locally) and I normally avoid any foods with added chemicals.

I don't think it's diabetic neuropathy because I don't have diabetes. I am prone to it, and had "gestational diabetes" while pregnant with my son, but I eat in a way that keeps my blood sugar stable (low sugar, low GI). My A1C tests have been in the normal range for the past 2 years (prior to that, I didn't think to ask for all my labwork from the dr.)

I've had vaginal yeast infections in the past, and I don't have one now. This makes me think that I don't have candida overgrowth. And it's not like I've been eating a high-sugar diet, so how would I have gotten candida?

Ruthie, it's not that you might have a new case of candida...it's possible you've never gotten rid
of the yeast overgrowth that could have caused a leaky gut awhile back, before you ever went on
the diet...Yeast can feed on grains and fruit and anything sweet.  Only a total paleo diet would
give you no carbs....and not in any way suggesting anything quite that radical...  Can't possibly know for sure what's causing this...but it sounds very plausible to avoid the nutritional yeast and see if that makes a difference.

Sulfites in wine...could be neurotoxic for your body.
http://www.jbc.org/content/279/41/43035.full

There are red wines that are sulfite free...and organic, but might not be kosher.  And I don't know
if sulfites could be the natural result of wine production whether it's added as an ingredient or not.

RG you answered just as I expected.. soert of difficult.. but I might suggest to stop the magnesium for a while as well.. seems if I do lots then it gets worse.. as for diabetes.. it might comes later becasuse of your diet..

I have spondylolisthesis grade 2 which I never knew I had until arthritis set in. Any lower back overuse will cause sciatic pain. Mag. also helps me.  By they way sciatica also make me very tired.

One simple test, sleep tonight with two pillows in one case, but under your knees but up high enough that your almost sitting on the edge.  If this helps you'll know by morning as you'll have spent the night giving your sciatic nerve a rest.

I was on a Paleo diet before I stumbled upon BTD. I REALLY haven't had a lot of sugars in years. Heavy metal toxicity is a distinct possibility though; I still have something like 9 amalgam fillings in my mouth.

I'm going to cut out the wine and yeast and see what happens. I'll continue to have a small amount of wine on Friday nights (though I will try to find something sulfate-free by next week) but I'll totally stop having it during the week. I'm not going to stop the magnesium though- I can definitely feel the muscle pain when I forget to use it, so it's clear to me that my body needs the mag right now.

Sulfite free wine is quite expensive, well here anyway (just as a warning)

I agree with you on the magnesium.  Don't recommend you stop.  As someone who had
severe fibro for years, I know it helps for pain and the transdermal delivery totally got rid of my trigger point knots in muscles. Although, gotta say, that sometimes the bottoms of my feet
feet feel numb or tingly...mostly toes...and for me, it might be circulation.

Is the numbness in both legs and both feet?  Just wondered if it were one sided which is more
indicative of a disc issue where a nerve is likely impinged...Also is it your entire foot top and bottom or just bottom? Just toes or is it the entire foot?  And how about hands?  Any numbness?  Do you remember when this began?  It seems a bit strange that you'd suddenly be affected by heavy metals....You could try adding cilantro/corriander to many foods...It's a heavy metal chelator.  So is chlorella if you've got any of these listed on your SWAMI.

I understand.. yet, I have had more success with Manganese, There was a time I really needed it lots of it.. I got it at Chiro .. called LIGAPLEX ll by Standard Process..  I would advise to try it for pain.. I took it as often as pain came back.. but that was for pain.. and much better than any painkiller pill.

As for the magnesium I am more concerned that you take it in balance to all other minerals affecting your body.  

I was able to get rid of my neuropathy 99% with dropping my weight.. I have no numbness any more, just twitching at night sometime, but there is where my work comes in. in fact if nothing else works - IT works!

I've read this thread with great interest, as I've had numbness in both feet before. In my case due to the effects of medication, and it went away, but still, I can relate.

The questions Chloe poses are the same questions I'd ask you: is the numbness one-sided or in both feet?
Are the toes affected, or the entire foot, etc etc.
Knowing this might help rule out some probable causes.

It's in  both feet fairly evenly. It's worse in the toes, but the numbness does spread to other parts of the feet. It feels like the numbness starts in the bottom of the ball of my foot, then spreads from there. It rarely reaches the top of my foot, but sometimes my entire big toe is affected. It's slightly worse on the left side, but only slightly.

The feeling in my legs is different. It's just the skin, and I'm not entirely sure if it's the numbness spreading or just a weird feeling on my skin. That's gone up as high as my knees, and more recently to my inner thighs (but not the outer.)

I haven't had any kind of numbness above the waist; my hands are not affected at all.

It began a few weeks ago, around the time my daughters left for camp.

For about a year, I've been eating lots of garlic, onions, and turmeric. I started that when Patty H emailed me her "mercury detox protocol" her dentist gave her. I was unable to use all the products her dentist recommends, but I did increase those foods before amalgam removal and never stopped eating them regularly.

My greatest concern with chelation is that I don't want to leach more mercury out of my fillings while they're still in my mouth. I want to open up detox pathways and get any circulating mercury out, but not in such a powerful way that it starts leaching more mercury into my system. Cilantro gets mercury circulating but doesn't remove it from the body, so I'm using that sparingly (as a spice occasionally.) I did buy chlorella, and have been having 1/8th teaspoon a few times a week, but I'm wondering if that might be  doing me more harm than good.
