Mine has flared up again. Do they do that? It was kind of better with anti-inflammatories and wearing trainers instead of proper shoes. The thing that sparked it off was wearing orthotics again after a summer of wearing sandals with no orthotics. I guess I got a bit complacent because it seemed better and started 'experimenting' with other shoes. I think I'd convinced myself it wasn't MN because it got better. Does it get worse or does it stay the same as when you first got it?
I have found I can wear trainers with solid soles and I can also get away with my cowboy boots, which is a relief because trainers don't look good in the office (not that that would stop me if trainers were the only thing that worked). If all else fails the Docs might come back out but they're way too wide for my feet, especially without orthotics. I'm interested to know what kind of orthotics they recommend since my whole problem was initiated by wearing orthotics.
I have the characteristic splayed toes which actually feel like they're overlapping each other. What a weird feeling that is!! I keep taking my shoe off to stretch my toes out, only to find that they're splayed.
I'm having an ultrasound at the end of October. My rheumy thought it was actually synovitis and not MN, but I'm erring back towards MN now that the strange nerve feelings have come back. How do people deal with walking any distance when their foot hurts like stink? I had to go to London yesterday and was almost in tears by the time I got back to Victoria station and that was with a crutch to take as much weight as possible off it. Mind you, the rail company messing up my assistance didn't help.
I've used it twice and twice they've messed it up. Why do I bother?
