For many people, foot pain from certain conditions causes sleepless nights for themselves and their partners. These conditions include: peripheral neuropathy - a nerve disorder causing numbness and pain in both the feet and hands, Morton's neuroma - where pinched bones aggravate and inflame a nerve, a pinched nerve - which occurs in the lower back and travels down the sciatic nerve into the foot, and restless leg syndrome - where a chemical imbalance interrupts normal brain-to-nerve-cell signals and triggers involuntary leg movements. If you or your loved one are experiencing any nocturnal foot pain, contact a podiatrist who can help diagnose and treat your condition so you can get some relief and a good night's sleep.
