Feet

Hi all at the moment I am suffering with very sore/painfull feet with lots of hard skin and although I try to remove it myself it never seems enough,therefore I was wondering does anyone know if we qualify for any free chiropodist treatment to help reduce pain.

@sef71 , I think that would be a question for your GP, who may be able to offer some advice too. 😉

Yes you should qualify for free podiatry as you have a neurological condition which can affect your sensation. Your GP should be able to guide you but often self referral is available.

Interesting! I have a lot of pain in my feet sometimes from cramping, but over sensitivity makes just a little build up of hard skin hurt like hell- leading to limping, not exercise and increased wobbliness. I need a pedicure!

I have immense feet pain and hard skin. One thing you should ask your doctor for is some Diprobase Emollient cream, it’s excellent on dry and hard feet.
But as others have said above, you are entitled to free help.
Good luck

Same they look lovely. Infact you would be surprised how easy it is to do yourself if your tremor isn’t too bad yet . Buy the blade it really is easy . Put your feet in warm water with a foot soak my recommendation is try blue spa fizz its blue powder with a string scent lovely softens then get the corn blade I haven’t cut my foot once while using . You see you need to do it about once a week the state are feet get in . Also use cream each night socks in top

I go to see a chiropodist every 12 weeks. Not free I’m afraid. She has just dicided not to use a scalpel anymore, as my twitchy legs are getting more unpredictable. lol

Late last year I had an MS relapse with new symptoms. These new symptoms were tingling and numbness in my feet which spread to my calves and thighs etc and then stiffness. After I had new MRI and a spinal lesion was found ( only previously had brain lesions) I was given Meth pred and went home 3 days later. Of course it took about 8 weeks for symptoms to reside except for feet? My feet seem to have retained that awful sensation thing where you feel like all your toes are puffy and your feet are thick..does that make sense. Wearing socks and shoes feel terrible. My skin on my feet is quite coarse and hard and cracked. I think that I have made my feet worse because I am barefeet most of the time. I ever thought to go to chiropodist or podiatrist..maybe I should. Thanks for ideas 🙂
