    Hi intense,

    So many have TMS in the feet. I was one. Sometimes it arises again. I want to confirm your research. Dr. Marc Sopher was someone who studied with Dr. Sarno and wrote quite a bit about this in his own book, and also as contributor to The Divided Mind. Knowing this is TMS, I hope this is helpful for you. There are physician names for all the pains in the foot, and most of them, probably 95% are likely TMS when they last for awhile.

    Burning feet was one of my symptoms! This could certainly be TMS/the mind-body connection. When it’s caused by emotions, it’s a product of the sympathetic nervous system being stuck in overdrive. You don’t have to answer this for me - this is purely for you to consider: what’s been going on in your life? How are you managing your stress and emotions? What makes you feel relaxed and happy?

    I've been going through the ringer of mostly TMS retreads for me.. anxiety, cpps, dizziness...

    Ive had a bunch of new symptoms try to pop up but they are much easier.to stop in their tracks before they get going

    Three days ago I started getting burning feet after putting in way more miles in a week than usual. I assumed it was TMS as it only hurts when laying down haha.

    Seemed funny timing to see this post.at the same time.

    Good luck brother... One thing that's been helping me is doing 30 minutes of mindfulness meditation a day... I don't have the whole repressed emotions the others have.. I'm just always in the future with fast paced and negative thoughts that I neeed to slooooow down

    My "CRPS" started in one foot and then a mirror image in the other foot. Not to sound all new agey/woowoo but symbolically it says "I can't take another step. I can't go on like this". I was feeling incredibly trapped in my life ate the time of onset (for many years leading up to it)....I don't think it's a total coincidence.

    I have resolved the burning feet and Morton's neuroma.Also worked through neck pain. Just time and awareness. TMS gets you when you let your guard down. Compared to being sidelined 3 months with back pain all these are minor and not worrisome.
