Hi for last few days my bad foot has been hurting and giving way sometimes. I think I must have used a muscle which is now rebelling. I’m wearing an ankle support and still trying to walk and do my exercises but I don’t know if this is a good thing to do. Has anyone else experienced this and got any pearls of wisdom to share?suzywong
@Suzywong if what you are experiencing is a new and different kind of pain to the ‘usual’ you have experienced since the stroke, get it checked out by your GP or minor injuries clinic/walk in centre, it could be a strain or sprain, something that you may need to rest for it to repair.
Best wishes, hope you get it sorted soon, take care
Thanks I’ll do that if it continues. Such a pain when I seemed to be doing reasonable well .
No pearls of wisdom but in the nicest possible way, it makes me feel better to know other people have problems too!
That’s why I love being part of this forum! Knowing others are going through strange ailments doesn’t make me so unusual. Thanks
@Georgie2021 @Suzywong its a great forum isn’t it.
Quoted the above from another post to save repeating
Maybe physio could do a spot of massage along the sciatic nerve it might help, that runs from the base of spine down outside of leg. I mean that’s where all the brain’s signals comes from and it couldn’t hurt to try.
That looks like an instrument of torture!my 6 weeks of support finished about 6 weeks ago but I still have a phone contact number so I’ll try that tomorrow and try to see if a physio can pop round.thanks
Certainly is! I wish we could all meet in person!
That’s what I said to my osteopath when he first mentioned it
Mind you, the one he was suggesting was more like this:
It’s hard to reach your back yourself and it’s tiring on the hands too and you can’t get in enough pressure either. The hook is useful for all those reasons
@Suzywong you can join the zog meetings @Bobbi hosts the meetings, Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays I think.
How do I join these meetings? I don’t have a computer just an I phone
