An anxiety disorder: Plus or minus conversion disorder can give you all the above symptoms--and I have seen several people with such presentations. You may want to treat with a good psychiatrist who can provide long-term treatment without resorting to benzodiazepines, though. There are significant problems with benzodiazepines, especially if one uses them long-term. Take care. ...Read more

Why is it when I put pressure on the front"balls" of my foot my leg shakes uncontrollably? Happens to me with the slightest pressure

Why is it when I put pressure on the front"balls" of my foot my leg shakes uncontrollably? Happens to me with the slightest pressure

Position and balance: It could be due to your sense of foot position and balance. This is a sensation that is picked up by a special nerve called a "proprioceptor" this could be from neurological or musculoskeletal origin. Such a thing could also be due to tight muscle groups in the leg. If this seems to be getting worse or is causing you pain, you should have this evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

When I sit down and put my foot in tippy toe position it sometimes shakes uncontrollably. This happened as boy too, I'm 32 now. ALS or MND?

Of course not: The principal feature of ALS is weakness, not shaking. If you'd developed ALS as a boy, you would have been dead many years ago.

Internal tremor affecting feet 24/7. Awaiting CT scan. I've been suffering with frequent headaches. Any ideas on the internal shaking? Worried it's ms.

It depends...: You need an examination by neurologist: usually a ct will not be helpful, make sure there's a good reason for it. Could be many things, many of which are benign. The neurologist can steer you in the right direction. I wouldn't jump to conclusions, although ms can give many symptoms, headache and bilateral tremor are not typically among them. ...Read more

I broke my 5th metatarsal in my right foot and I'm down for 6wks. Can I lose weight by drinking protein shakes & still promote bone healing?

I broke my 5th metatarsal in my right foot and I'm down for 6wks. Can I lose weight by drinking protein shakes & still promote bone healing?

Losing weight: Maybe if your total calories decrease by the increased number in the shakes. Even though you may be "down" or off your feet for 6 weeks, you can still do upper extremity work outs or core exercises to burn off calories. A healthy diet is best, protein shakes are really for increasing muscle mass, not losing weight. You may gain more weight without extra bone healing benefit. ...Read more

My 7 week old's foot sometimes shakes when sleeping and when the foot is pushed back toward the shin. Is this a reflex? Is it normal?

Normal: These symptoms are normal for an infant. Due to their immature nervous system they will have some "shakes" and reflexes that would be pathological in an adult.

I have foot pain in sole of foot, feels like cramp. Could this be because of disc bulge at L5 / s1?

Probaby not: The L5 nerve root inervates primarily the top of the foot. While the s1 nerve root does inervate the bottom of the foot, neuropathic pain usually doesn't present with cramping.

Broken ankle last year. Numbness on sole of foot and when I raise my toes it feels like block in paw of foot op block damaged nerve. Can it be fixed?

Ask your surgeon, or: If your surgeon doesn't think it can be repaired, don't be afraid to ask for a second opinion. Also, was it numb since the surgery or just lately?

Don't ignore: Hard to say without more info about your injury and level of pain. Can take 6-12 months to heal a heel (pun intended). Early weightbearing and range of motion are important steps to recovery.
