My mother, 96, has Alzheimer's, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, arthritis in the lower back; severe carpal tunnel syndrome; an artificial hip; and meningionoma (a non cancerous tumor in her right frontal lobe that causes severe headaches. She also had her thyroid removed in her 70's and has high blood pressure.
During the night, upon awakening in the morning and sometimes during the day she complains that she can't feel her feet, that the don't feel part of her body and she can't walk on them. She describes the sensation as like having a sock or other covering over her feet, and the skin feels strange. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
