A podiatrist could be a first step to help orient diagnosis. the access is easy and you dont need a dr's referral.
I have a lot of issues with my feet which are not CD related. They are mechanical issues. Mechanical issues with feet/ankle from bad posture/misalignment are very common.

You can start there but if it's neuropathy you will get sent to a neurologist

Thanks. This just started. I have seen a podiatrist for other issues. Guess I need another appointment if it keeps happening.

Have you noticed it if is worse at a certain time of day? Have you changed shoes recently? I went through a period of time where every morning it was agony to get up and on my feet - I believe it was a case of plantar fascitis (sp).....Mine did eventually go away, but I did start wearing different shoes for work too and I think that helped.
