I'm not sure, but my symptons fit.mI'm in agony some days. How was yours diagnosed? I have a gp appointment next week.

It took ages to diagnose but I think purely because some of the doctors told me it was all in my head!
I had a lump in my foot that kept growing, kept getting pins and needles and kept 'stumbling'. I couldn't stand for long periods of time as the pressure on my feet was unbearable.
One doctor ended up mentioning it as a possibility. I was referred for a scan and then had an operation on one foot a few months later and the other foot a year later.
It's made a massive difference. I can walk without pain now and can even stand for an hour or so without getting shooting pains!
You're probably in a better position than me to start with as you can have them rule it out immediately.
Just ask if you have any more questions. Good Luck
