FOOT PROBLEMS

I have lymphoedema in my left leg but it wasn't diagnosed in the right one (about 7 years ago). In November 2002 I noticed my right ankle swelling and, since then have had a very bad pain underneath the ball of the foot and the toes and top of foot area have been pinched and burning/tingling. I am taking diuretics to keep swelling down. Anti-flammatory doesn't seem to work. It's now in both feet. Last year I was fitted with VERY hard orthotics by a podiatrist and have only had these problems since then. I have had x-rays, blood test and EMG for tarsal tunnel syndrome but all have come back negative. I am awaiting test for lymphoedema for right leg in June. I don't think these pains are associated with lymphoedema as very painful.

Thank you for your help.
