Hi! I was diagnosed with cmt when I was very young (like 8). My father had it and so did my uncles and grandma. I've never had too much trouble except the frequent tripping and spraining my ankle when I run/play sports. Also, I had to stop runnning in highschool beacause my feet would hurt so bad. Whenever I walk a lot (like hiking or a trip to NYC), my feet and calves burrrrrn. This has all been normal for me.
But recently, (I'm now 27) my feet and calves are hurting/burning almost daily, even when I've hardly done any walking at all. In addition, I've developed a slight tremor in my hands over the past few months and my hands get really tired really easily (it's hurting as I type this message on my iPhone). So, my question is: cod my rather sudden onset of pain and tremor be related to my cmt suddenly progressing or getting worse? I know it's a degenerative disease, does it get worse and worse throughout life? Thanks for any responses!
