I posted a pic of my horrible toe a couple of weeks ago, it's still horrible with no sign of healing. I've had it for a couple of months now, I wish I'd known to get it seen to straight away. However the podiatrist tells me the horrendous pain I get from it is nerve damage, GP prescribed Amitriptyline, I've been taking 3 a day for a week now without any relief so far.
The pain is constant, I can't get any shoes on, and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to walk more than a few steps, can anyone recommend anything for pain relief. My foot feels as though someone is pressing a red hot iron on it!
I haven't got to get it wet, which means the swimming I was doing to help my arthritis has stopped and I have to wear a protective cover to shower.
I've tried frozen peas wrapped in a cloth, that doesn't help. I'm getting stir crazy not being able to go anywhere!
Any advice appreciated, thank you in advance.
