I developed Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) several years ago & have had a few falls from not being able to feel where my feet are, in relation to the ground that is .. Two years ago, I fell down stairs, suffering a crush injury & a broken bone in my leg .. This led to the Lyphodaema ..
After the fracture I was given Physiotherapy - with hydrotherapy which helped a lot .. I can relieve some of the swelling by lying down with my feet up, but I can't live my life like that !! ..
I was prescribed some Compression Stockings, but have been unable to use them, as the pain from the PN becomes so much worse ..
I have learnt, through researching my problems, that people with Peripheral Neuropathy should never wear compression stockings ..
I write to ask how other people cope with this ? .. There are times when the pain from the PN is quite unbearable, and the swelling of my feet just adds to the discomfort ..
I write to ask what other could suggest ? ..
Thanks in advance ..
