I think this post is an offload as I am coming to the conclusion that I may have this condition. Searching for running shoes for high arches led me to this condition being a possibility.
I have only mild symptoms such as very high arches, which i have had all my life, and recently numb toes in my right foot. I am not one to self diagnose normally, but my concern is heightened by the fact that my father died 20 yrs ago from Motor Neurone disease.
Now the questions running through my head are did he really have MND or was this a misdiagnosis due to at the time of his death there being no test to diagnose other than ruling out other conditions? Is it coincidence that I have these symptoms?
I hope I am just being silly, but after losing a parent when I was so young and him being only 41, I think most people would appreciate that this has instilled huge anxiety at the thought of developing a condition that was as traumatic and aggressive as he had. This is especially due to have fit and well he was previous to him developing symptoms, then 2 yrs later unable to walk, talk, feed himself and end up weighing just 6 stone
