    Burning and cramping in your toes only, not in the feet

    This is rather strange I think. I have what I think is neuropathy in my toes, but not my feet, not anywhere else. Has anyone had this type of thing?

      Bonecrusher, mine is even stranger. It ONLY affects me if I go to sleep with socks on. Then, I will wake up with horrible burning and stinging in my toes. All I have to do is take off the socks and the pain goes away. So weird.

      I have slight neuropathy, just recently, in each of my little fingers. No others. For a while, only one little finger was affected, but now both. For those, it is just a tingly or dead feeling.

      If your drug has the potential for peripheral neuropathy, then yes. As well, certain drugs like Doxorubicin tend to produce hand and foot syndrome, or variations of it. Call doctor's office and ask about it, as it may be normal for the drug(s) you are receiving.

      I have it on one foot.

      If your chemo wouldn't normally cause neuropathy you should alert your chemo nurse, but also maybe make sure it isn't Gout. Gout frequently starts on the big toe.

      Good luck!!! I'm wishing at you That its just temporary annoyance!

      I was just telling my wife last night that I had that same thing going on. Cramps mainly, but with some burning.
