Re: Difference of opinion on bulging disks, etc?

There can definitely be a correlation between the back and the symptoms you are experiencing in the extremity. In this case, the medics are of the opinion it's not possible and that's absolutely wrong. Anything is possible. It is by far a definite possibility from what you have said and should be included in the differential diagnosis and ruled out. Are we taking both feet or just one? I see some of what the MD's are thinking but most rheumatologic disorders are systemic (affecting the whole body) not just one part. I would have some nerve conduction tests done and I would run a arthritic panel to check for arthritic markers. Neuropathy in the feet is often present in those with diabetes.
