my feet

september 16 2008

The podotherapist I went to yesterday was a nice guy.
I was a bit hesitant to go, because the woman I went to a few years ago was unkind and the soles she provided were not good.

But this one got my confidence.

On the phone I liked his voice.
In reality I liked the way he dealt with everything.

I examined my painful foot very well and found one of the problems rather fast.

He told me that one of the middle bones was out of place and probably trapped a nerve continuously or intermittant.

He pushed the bone right in place and it gave already a hige relief of the pain.
It's strange to realise my intuition made me do what he did properly. because I couldn't do it myself.
He had to give quite some pressure to get the job done, but now I can move my foor far better, stand on my toes again and flex and point at wish. Wow!!

The trouble at the right might be due to chronic irritation, or maybe something else.
We'll see.

When I went home I realised that my feet aren't as sensitive to tickling anymore.
As a diabetic it worries me a lot.
Deterioration of the nerves at the feet and hands are the first sign of nerve damage.
Me og my...I still have so many plans that involve fingers and feet.


  1. It's great that you found someone that could help you. I wish you the best.

  2. I'm diabetic & have the nerve damage (neuropathy) that goes with it. The majority of people who get neuropathy find their feet get so cold they burn and have shooting pains & aches all the time. It's very rare for nerve damage to make you feel numb so I don't think you have nerve damage.

    Hope this helps put your mind at rest.
