Crawling sensation in feet?

Hi does anyone have a crawling sensation in their feet and the only thing that helps is to keep moving them?
I’m not feeling well at the moment and I have this along with nausea fatigue foggy head and I’m wondering if this is a flare up? See doc on Thursday
Thank you

That sounds like restless leg syndrome. It could also be the start of neuropathy.

Yep, what Stoney said. Is it worse with an arthritis flare or independent of it? What meds are you on at the moment?

When I had similar, the thing that most helped me was using an arthritis spray on them - the heat seemed to confuse the nerves just enough to let me get to sleep. I found it important to spray the soles of me feet. Deep heat or tiger balm would work the same way I imagine.

You should have it checked though - it may be caused by some other underlying condition that needs addressing.

Thank you
I don’t have it at night though I have it all day!
I have got some tiger balm so will give that a go anyway. Also I have had it some days with no other symptoms so better get it checked out.
I take escitalopram for anxiety and pregabalin that’s all at the moment x

A magnesium spray/arthritis spray helps with this. And it is what @Stoney said. Either one,

I ALWAYS have issues with feet. Burning tingling itching. I now always shower before bed and use AVEDA FOOT RELEIF at night. This has helped a lot.
