After a really busy day, I good night's rest is always a good idea. However some people start experiencing serious foot pains as they're drifting off. Usually foot pain occurs during the day while we are doing our daily routines, some conditions can cause us discomfort at night while we are trying to sleep.
A common reason for this nightly discomfort is peripheral neuropathy. This is a common problems associated with people who are suffering with diabetes. Generally the more uncontrolled your blood sugar is, the more likely you are going to have pain from peripheral neuropathy. Another reason for night time foot pain is a neuroma, or an impingement of a nerve in your foot that can cause shooting pains.
