ye gods, what just happened to my feet?!
This has never occurred before and I'm wondering WTH?? About a week a go I took off on a normal trip, nothing unusual except the heat index,which was hovering at about 103 F and I'm as used to that as one can expect to be. Right off the start, at about 2 miles from home I noticed a light pricking sensation on the top of my right foot, but it wasn't any hassle. It felt like a weed seed or something in my sock, so I ignored it and continued. Slowly it grew into a strong stinging sensation and I then wondered if a bee hadn't smacked into my foot and worked its way into the sock. Before long this stinging turned into a feeling of actual HEAT, I mean heat as though someone were holding the cherry end of a cig to my foot. At this point I realized the same sensation was now beginning in the top of the other foot. I reached down and undid my laces but it didn't help. I made it about a mile further, couldn't stand it anymore and finally sat right down and ripped my shoes and socks off. The tops of both feet were a scary bright red with little white spots all over, but they were both cool to the touch. I never had a rash or anything anywhere else, and I really didn't feel overheated--I'd only been on the road about 10 minutes anyway! I thought about heading back barefooted but I finally put the shoes back on and made it home where I headed for a tub of water. My feet felt like they were actually smoldering.
Anybody know what this was or had something similar happen?
I'm guessing it was a heat thing but I would think I should be used to that by now...anyway, never had it happen before now!:confused:
