Hello all - Been dealing with another TMS issue since March 2016 with ball of foot pain that came about after lung surgery for Pneumonia. After losing some weight due to some high blood sugar numbers and exercising I am able to experience periods with no ball pain at all. Sometimes for a week before it pops up again. That is about the 4th time I have beat TMS. It took awhile this time since I couldnt get away from it...it hurt every step but I mentally plowed through. Now I am having another issue... I noticed a red rash around my ankles up toward my calf that would get worse when I exercise. Some parts look like a brownish bruise. Went to my Dr. and he said it could be some varicosis. I am a 39 year old male so I had to good which sent me into a small anxiety fit. I saw things like Chronic Venous Insufficiency which shows people with dark legs with sores. Of course that make me worry that it could be me some day. Then we went to Florida for a week and my ankles swelled up from the heat which is also a sympton of vein issues. I know I have a part of my TMS that is health anxiety and have made pains come up in the past from worrying. I wonder if maybe the tension is blocking off my blood supply in my legs. My Dr. sure didn't seem to care at all. I want to catch it if I have a real vascular issue...dont want brusied legs with varicose veins as a 40 year old dad. But I question if my mind isn't doing all of it.
