Affected Side Pain

My affected (we are not meant to call it weak :thinking:) foot swells with being on my feet too much, also when I scratch it or apply pressure it hurts - is this neopathic pain or cellulitis?

@a.clare71 I am not medically trained but reading between the lines sounds like a bit of both. If it’s red and swollen I’d say cellulitis. I think you should get a nurse or doctor to check it out. Hope it doesn’t give you to much trouble. Best wishes Loraine


Thank you. no pain unless I touch the foot with effort or scratch it. Don’t think the heat is doing it any favours.

I think you can get a cream to keep it hydrated and make it more comfortable. As Loshy says a doctor or practice nurse will have advice. Propping it up is also supposed to help deal with the swelling.
Take care not to break the skin which could encourage infection.

The feeling in my toes has returned - YIPPEE!!!

Wonder whether that was why foot was behaving the way it was.

Toes are sensitive. Should help with my balance?

@a.clare71 so glad for you. Did you use any method like creams or heat to help? My left foot underneath my toes still get pins and needles. Have a nice sunny weekend :hibiscus: :sunny:

Thank you. Didn’t use anything other than exercise that uses the part of body. I massaged the toes and used CCS foot care cream

Did use my Ultrasound on my foot for a about a week. Maybe that helped?
