So many answers to your question of why do my feet itch, which can only be answered by a physical examination. 1% hydrocortisone cream may be bought from the chemist to be applied at night and monitor the situation. If no improvement over a period of a week, then see your GP. Rarely does your symptom indicate a serious underlying condition.

the itch sounds as if it could be caused by the amitryptaline (sp)
Contact your gp in the morning

Thanks for your reply but I had taken that for a few years, with no problems apart from a dry mouth at night.
ooh, that solves that - but doesn't solve the blasted itch :-(

Occasionally have itchy feet so I can understand.
I found plopping on a couple of cold cloths eased it, even 'wore' them to bed one night to try to get some sleep :-)

Have you by any chance been eating a lot of sugary food recently?
In my own experience, I have linked sugary food to the tingling and itch that I get in my feet from time to time. If I eat a lot of sugar, the itchy tingling is certain to follow.
