I have been diagnosed with perpheral polyneuropathy, as well as over active thyroid, with positive for lupus.I seem to get cramps in my feet, ect.Painful?

Confusing: Not sure of your question.

However, nerve pathology is likely the cause of your symptoms. Other than baclofen, you are not taking the usual nerve pain suppressant meds, and I am unclear re the cause of your nerve problem. ...Read more

Arch pain: There may be a number of reasons to why you are getting pain in your feet.

This allows you to overpronate and decrease your arch. You can help prevent and improve this pain with good tennis shoes and a podiatry referral. ...Read more

Couple of things: Nocturnal symptoms only, make one think of Restless leg syndrome but that shouldn't lead to cramping. Lumbar spine issues can lead to leg pain with cramps.

Iam i pregnant i missed last month periode n i tke birth controll today i was supposed to get my periode n didn't come but I have been still taking birth controll n i get cramps n my feet hurt n i feel uneven of balance

I : I am not sure that i understand the situation that you have described. I believe you are indicating that you have just missed your second menstrual cycle in a row. I am unable to determine if you took all your birth control pills as prescribed. You now have cramps in your feet and feel off balance. I hope i understood correctly. Those don't sound like typical pregnancy symptoms. Pregnancy symptoms early on can include: lack of a period, feeling tired, nausea, food cravings, urinating more often, swollen or tender breasts. As i read this again, it may be that you are having some mild abdominal cramping (which can occur in early pregnancy) and your feet hurt. Recommend taking a pregnancy test if you have not been getting your period. You may need to speak with your doctor about feel off balance. Good luck. ...Read more
