Involuntary foot stomping
Among other neurological problems that the VA can't diagnose I've started involuntarily stomping my feet while standing. This will only last a few seconds and I may only stomp them 5 or 6 times. This has been going on now since early Feb this year. The civilian neurologist I'm seeing now has suggested that I see a 'movement specialist'. I'm looking for some answers that might be causing this. I have had CT and MRI scans of my brain, cervical and thoracic spines and they show no problems nor does all the lab work I've had done. I'm at a loss as to what to do. I'm hoping that if I get to see a movement specialist that they can come up with something but in the meantime does anyone have any ideas?

What do you mean "stomping"?

Maybe I should have used the word 'marching' as in LRLRLR

Does it happen when you think about walking?

I've only noticed it when I'm standing still and just suddenly have the urge to 'stomp'.

I remember a time when I had the urge to march. It was when I was on Paxil. I was up and down the hall 100+ times a day. It was awful. Needless to say I didn't take Paxil very long. I was like the Energizer Bunny. :o

I'm not quite that bad and the only medications I take are 800mg Ibuprofen for the headache I've had for over a year.

HHMMM? :confused: Your headache might have something to do with it. Or the Ibuprofen? A side affect perhaps of long term use? :confused:

The headache, according to my current non-VA neurologist is more likely a 'rebound' headache from Ibuprofen overuse. I'm waiting to get some meds from the VA that I can take to get me off the Ibuprofen. According to her no, the marching/stomping is not caused by the Ibuprofen.
